Our VISION is to position the Rhode Island Marine Industry as the leader in our community and our economy.

Training Programs

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.

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.
