There are 2 main pre-requisites for the AMEI Course:
1. Student must have taken and passed the basic MEI course
2. All students must have at least one year of field experience installing marine electronics before NMEA will issue an AMEI Certificate.
a. If the student already does have this field experience, it needs to be verified in writing by the student's employer.
b. If the student does not yet have this field experience (for example they are a new hire, graduate, new to the industry, or apprentice), they will be eligible for their AMEI Certificate exactly one year from the date of issue on the MEI certificate
Please note that any student can take the AMEI class and test at any time. As a marine electronics installer, field experience is the best independent teaching tool.
