Due to the ongoing COVID situation, the BMEEA postponed the annual conference but held the 2020 Annual General Meeting via Zoom. Normally several awards would be presented during the conference, but due to the circumstances, only two awards were made for 2020, these being to the Newly Certificated Electronic Technician of the year and to the Newly certificated Electrical Technician of the year.
The BMEEA is determined to recognise the efforts and achievements by apprentices and engineers alike within the leisure marine industry, to continue to drive standards up through attaining industry relevant qualifications.
