BoatU.S. added a list of marine trade schools, community colleges and accredited certification programs to its Guide to Marine Education Programs.

One- and two-year technical programs are available to people who are considering a career in the marine trades as a boatbuilder, designer or marine technician.

The addition of such programs to BoatU.S.'s previously released Guide to Marine Education, which has four-year college and university marine programs, makes learning about educational opportunities easier by having all of the information in one place.

An additional resource is the feature "The Boat Lovers' Guide to Marine Trade Schools," which premieres in the October/November issue of BoatU.S. magazine and can be found online by clicking here.
