Radio manufacturer, Icom Canada in Delta, BC, has received the Sponsorship Excellence Award from the Aquanaute Training Centre (ATC) for its contribution and leadership in responsible and safe boating.
The award was presented by ATC President Vahe T. Vassilian to Jason Wegwitz, Marketing Coordinator for Icom Canada, at the recent Toronto International Boat Show.
According to Vassilian, Icom Canada has been a strong supporter of the Aquanaute Training Centre's boating safety training courses and services for the past five years. "We would really like to thank our sponsors who support us in our safety efforts,' says Vassilian. "Icom Canada has supplied us with floating VHF radios for our boats and PWCs, allowing us to communicate efficiently. Without sponsors like them, we wouldn't be able to operate our programs.'
ATC provides professional planning and promotion services for the organization of special events (such as demo days) held by marine manufacturers, dealers and public or private administrations. ATC also provides training courses for consumers including PWC operation, boat maintenance and trailering, and specialized courses for rescue teams and police.
