Yacht Broker “Certification”
More than 150 yacht brokers nationwide have earned certified professional yacht broker status since the program began, say the trade
associations that conceived it.
The CPYB designation was introduced in 2002 — the result of a collaboration between the Yacht Brokers Association of America in Annapolis
, Md., the Fort Lauderdale-based Florida
Yacht Brokers Association and the Northwest Yacht Brokers Association of Seattle
. The organizations worked with the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute to develop a core
“body of knowledge” and develop a written exam.
Certified Brokers have passed the National Yacht Broker Certification
exam, which tested their ability and competency in several skill areas. Certified Brokers must maintain their certification
by participating in 30 credit hours of industry training
over threee year intervals. Please visit the other areas of this site to get a better understanding of the program and requirement a certified broker must meet to earn their CPYB designation.
