Welcome to the Maritime Technical Center

A Unique Nonprofit Boatbuilding and Repair Trade School

THE NEED
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.


THE SOLUTION
Create a top of the line trade school to train individuals for careers in the marine construction trades by incorporating the techniques of self learning and problem solving in the curriculum.  Promote  innovative thinking, good work ethics and teamwork.
