ABYA courses and events

ABYA launched its training pathway - the ABYA Academy - in 2019.  Various training opportunities will be rolled out over time for members to support their own career progression using on-line modules, practical events and interactive events on-line. Members are also able to submit other training activities for consideration towards their pathway, leading ultimately to ABYA professional certification for members.  All events count towards members' Continuous Professional Development points.

The long-established ABYA Yacht Brokers 2 day intensive course continues to run several times a year.  The course has presentations by a range of industry professionals in such areas as law, RCD, insurance, VAT, etc.  

ABYA offers events throughout the year to assist yacht brokers and dealers in their professional development and provide great networking opportunities. These include visits to a factory or boatyard, practical training days, the Senior Brokers' Conference in the spring and a joint training day with the YDSA members alongside the AGMs.

Our conferences are open to members and non-members alike. For these events, members enjoy a discounted rate.  

All courses are listed on the Courses page and can be booked direct.  For details of the ABYA Academy see the Academy page.
