NMMA Certified Boat and Yacht manufacturers are required to send at least one person from their organization to the NMMA Engineering Compliance Seminar at least once every two years. In addition, certified manufacturers must have at least one representative pass applicable Compliance Specialist exams annually.

Testing is based on the ABYC standards and NMMA Certification requirements for the upcoming model year. Upon successful completion of applicable exam modules, the individual will receive a certificate outlining the achievement and status as a Compliance Specialist.

The 2021 Model Year NMMA Compliance Specialist exams can be found at the link provided:  www.nmmacompliancespecialist.org

All Compliance Specialist participants will be required to reset their passwords during the first login attempt.  The email address provided at the time of registration will be used to reset your password.

All 2019 NMMA Compliance Seminar attendees have been automatically granted access to the website.  If you did not attend the seminar, please contact Melissa Taylor at mtaylor@nmma.org to gain access to the exam software.

Once we receive your request, we will provide you with a list of required exams based on your current Master Model List.  All non-attendees will be charged a $15.00 fee per exam and will gain access to the exam software once the invoice has been paid.
