CPYB & MICD Partnership

The Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB) program has partnered with the Marine Industry Certified Dealership (MICD) Program in order to offer the benefits of CPYB certification to Certified Dealerships. Sales personnel at Marine Industry Certified Dealerships are now eligible to become Certified Professional Yacht Brokers, at a savings of $550 per applicant.

The CPYB program was created, and is endorsed by, the seven major yacht sales professional associations in North America: Yacht Brokers Association of America; Florida Yacht Brokers Association; Northwest Yacht Brokers Association; California Yacht Brokers Association; Boating Ontario Dealer; British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association; and, Gulf Coast Yacht Brokers Association.

The new MICD/CPYB relationship means that the proprietor of a Certified Dealership is able to send any of his or her dealership employees through the CPYB program at the co-sponsoring association rate. CPYB certification is the boating industry’s brand of excellence for yacht sales professionals throughout North America. Applicants must meet a stringent set of criteria to first apply for the program; afterwards, they are required to successfully pass a written, three-hour exam in order to officially earn CPYB credentials.

The CPYB designation is the most prestigious accreditation a yacht sales professional can earn within the recreational marine industry and is valid for three years from the anniversary of the exam date. “We are thrilled to join forces with CPYB and be able to offer this incredibly valuable benefit to Certified Dealerships,” says Sonja Moseley, MICD Program director. “Earning their CPYB certification will help Certified Dealership’s employees to become that much more professional. The CPYB designation is another mark of prestige that will help set Certified Dealership personnel apart from their competition in the marketplace.”
