RIMTA coordinates training programs with local industry and educational institutions that will give you the skills needed to get your first job in the marine trades.
These programs are a great way for young people to get a start in our industry, or for unemployed or underemployed individuals of all ages who want to make a career change.
We offer two basic types of programs: Entry-Level Skills Training and On-the-Water Career Training.
Entry-Level Skills Training
These programs prepare individuals for jobs at a boat yard, marina, or marine manufacturer. No boating experience is required. If you enjoy working with your hands and have other interests and skills — such as carpentry or working with engines — these programs will help you start a marine career.
One of our most popular entry-level programs is our Core Training Program which runs for 3 weeks and requires a full-time, Monday-Friday commitment. It is an entry level introduction to the marine and composites industry.
Our next Core Training Program is starting on January 27, 2020.
