Larsen Marine Service is Proud to Announce our Status as a National Marine Electronics Association Master Dealer

National Marine Electronics Association Master DealerLess than 20 companies in the maritime industry hold the NMEA Master Dealer Classification – Larsen Marine Service is the only Marina complex on the Great Lakes with this distinction!

The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) has launched a program that allows boaters to identify marine electronics dealers who are committed to education, technical proficiency, and customer service consistent with NMEA’s high standards. It is called the Master Dealer Program.

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.

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.

“We are constantly striving to improve our skills and expertise in order to provide WORLD CLASS electrical / electronic service to our customers!’

— Kevin Kriegel, Larsen Marine’s Electronics Manager, CMET, FCC GROL

The Master Dealer Program focuses on three main areas: technical proficiency, ongoing education, and customer service. “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 executive director of NMEA. “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.”
