Posted Thursday, Aug 25, 2011 by
If you have a love for fixing things and have thought about what it would take to work on boats, jet-skis and other marine watercraft, WyoTech in Daytona offers a Marine Specialist program where you can get the training needed that can help prepare you for entry-level employment in the marine industry.
Having a safe boat, no matter what the size or mission, is a good thing for people to have who use watercraft for fun, work or travel. Safety on the water is critically important. Providing that safety through effective maintenance and repair is a top goal for marine specialists and watercraft technicians.
While it may be possible to learn some of the necessary skills of watercraft repair without formal training, those with some type of formal training from a community, vocational or post-secondary trade school may have a greater chance of finding entry-level employment.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, United States Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-11 Edition, job prospects look promising and employment for small engine mechanics is expected to grow by seven percent through 2018.* Job growth will vary depending on the type of equipment mechanics are required to repair.
If the thought of working on stern drives, marine diesel engines, and electrical and fuel systems has captured your imagination, don’t hesitate to contact WyoTech’s Daytona campus to find out more about how you can start training for a new career as a marine specialist.
