COURSE DESCRIPTION

This program prepares students for careers as licensed deck crews, as well as serving as a stepping stone into management and operations positions aboard small passenger vessels and commercial towing units. Vessel operations students will receive extensive theoretical and practical training in navigation, boat handling, seamanship, safety and industry rules and standards. Students train on the school’s vessels and through internships in the marine field during their last two years in the program. Internships will provide excellent opportunities to apply for positions upon graduation.
