IYRS continues to closely monitor and follow safety recommendations about COVID-19 from the Rhode Island Governor's Office and Centers for Disease Control. IYRS is currently enrolling students for March 2021 and September 2021 program starts for hands-on learning at our Newport, RI campus.
The health and safety of IYRS students, faculty, and staff remain the school's top priority.
My name is Charlie Murphy, I am 19 years old. I am originally from Ridgewood New Jersey, and this is my second year attending IYRS.
My visit with Danielle in admissions told me everything I needed to hear. Hands-on learning, a big project to complete, and group work, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that the campus and surrounding area are gorgeous. As odd as it may sound, the smell of Restoration Hall was what convinced me...
I’m not sure where I’m going . . . but I know I’m on the right path at IYRS.
I recently retired after serving 35 years in the Navy. My wife and I fell in love with Newport when we were stationed here several years ago, and made the decision to return for this next phase of our lives.

When I finished my IYRS Marine Systems program in February 2020, I had my dream job lined up. It wasn’t handed to me by any means. But IYRS set me up with the means and the know-how to go for it...
If you're a visual learner, passionate about your field of study, and enjoy hands-on experiences, you'll likely thrive at a trade school. Trade schools welcome learners with strong work ethics and a natural passion for learning. If your goals align with what trade schools have to offer, you're already an excellent fit.
