A Subscription-Based Monthly Event
Frequently Asked Questions
Educator Training Webinar Series
Why did you change the format?
We polled our audience and discovered that, while July worked well in earlier iterations of this event, it isn't the best time for it anymore. We chose a new model of a monthly subscription-based series to allow for educators to take their summer time off and also to learn at their own pace if they desire.
Who is this event for?
The ABYC Foundation Educator Training Webinar Series is designed for those who are already teaching about boats, those developing a new program, as well as school administrators, and industry professionals who want to connect with the trainers. The majority of our participants are in the U.S., with a few from other countries and islands. All sessions will be in English.
