There's nothing better than making your passion your profession. Just ask those working in the recreational boating industry!
With fewer individuals coming up through the ranks to fill voids left by those retiring, the industry is experiencing a shortage of properly trained and skilled people. The main shortage is marine engine technicians, those who service and repair boats. Marine engine technician training is suitable for all ages and backgrounds -- those straight out of high school and those in mid-life looking for a change or an exciting new career. The program also provides a strong base for careers in other areas of the industry such as management, sales, distribution and human resources.
