Welcome to the Maritime Technical Center

A Unique Nonprofit Boatbuilding and Repair Trade School

"The focus of our community-based educational venture is to offer students of any age, race, gender, or financial status the opportunity to become successful employees or entrepreneurs in the boatbuilding and repair industry, a field with a demonstrated need for a skilled workforce."

The marine industry is experiencing a shortage of skilled workers. As the workforce ages, the new supply of qualified labor continues to decline, increasing the demand for qualified marine industry professionals.

Create a top of the line trade school to train individuals in the use of modern materials for a rewarding career in the marine industry and developing inherent creative and innovative talent. Provide the marine construction and repair industry with a diverse and well-qualified workforce.

Major donors and business partners will help shape a dynamic East Bay community venture designed to improve individual lives, strengthen the local economy, and assure the continued vitality of the marine construction and repair industry.
