This 6-month program trains students to install, repair, and maintain every essential system on boats of all sizes: Electrical, navigation, electronics, steering, diesel engines, plumbing, firefighting, HVAC, refrigeration, and more. It’s an intense immersion into the world of modern boat systems. Students work in teams. They get top-tier instruction and guidance from industry experts. They face the challenges and complexities of today’s technologies, and they emerge with a base of knowledge that will take them into any professional situation with the ability to succeed. Student externships deepen the exposure to actual work environments. ABYC and NMEA certification exam prep is a core part of the curriculum, so students are ready to take the tests, and enter the industry. The 6-month School of Marine Systems at a glance:
