Concord Marine Electronics- Master Dealer of National Marine Electronics Association
SEVERNA PARK, MD - The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) has certified Concord Marine Electronics as a NMEA Master Dealer, NMEA’s highest level of marine electronics dealer certification.
"We are very pleased that Concord Marine Electronics has met and surpassed the high standards of the NMEA Master Dealer Program,” said Bruce Angus, Interim Presidentr of the NMEA. "Attaining the Master Dealer status means that Concord Marine Electronics has a high commitment to education, technical proficiency and customer service, consistent with NMEA’s high standards.”
To qualify, dealerships must have at least one Certified Marine Electronics Technician (CMET) on staff and meet requirements for technical education and proper use of specific test equipment. A point system based on technical courses that are completed successfully is used to determine a dealership’s eligibility. Concord Marine Electronics has qualified on all NMEA criteria for certification as a Master Dealer.
The CMET classification, which has existed for nearly two decades, is awarded to technicians who have passed a stringent test examining all aspects of marine electronics. Other classifications that will count toward a Master Dealer’s eligibility include Marine Electronics Installer (MEI) and Advanced MEI. Technicians will also get credit for completing training in NMEA 2000®, the standard that allows plug-and-play operation of multiple devices connected to an onboard network.
"The Master Dealer Program is a key component in our pledge to the boating public that NMEA dealers have the knowledge and expertise to deliver superior customer service,” said Bruce Angus, Interim President. "We want boaters to know that when they see the Master Dealer logo, they’re getting the best service, equipment, and advice in the marine industry.”
