IYRS holding marine career event next week

The International Yacht Restoration School in Newport, R.I., will host a session on career opportunities in the marine industry next week.

The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 8 at the auditorium of the Community College of Rhode Island’s Newport campus. The program is for those who have no experience in the field, as well as anyone with a background in the boating business. It also is intended for those interested in transferring their skills to the marine industry, such as electrical technicians, electricians, machine operators and welders.

"This session is an excellent way to gather information about opportunities in the marine field and ways to train to gain in-demand skills,” Susan Daly of IYRS said in a statement.
