Marine Service Technician
Program Details & Tool Bonus Information
Why Work in the Marine Service Technician Industry?
The Governor’s Workforce Board in Rhode Island states, “…Occupational projections by the Department of Labor indicate that because of the combined pressures of expected retirements and anticipated growth, the state’s marine trades cluster will have to replace fully 26% its current work force over the next ten years. In short, finding ways to attract, train and retain skilled workers will be a critical challenge facing the cluster over the coming decade.”1
Each student will complete an internship in an actual marine-related company. The internship provides each student with valuable experience in an actual work atmosphere. Additionally, the internship provides an excellent opportunity to get your foot in the door at a potential employer!
