IYRS schedules open house


The International Yacht Restoration School is holding an open house at 4 p.m. Wednesday at its Bristol, R.I., facility, which is home to the school's Marine Systems and Composites Technology programs.

The event provides an opportunity to learn about IYRS training programs, as well as the skills in demand in the marketplace. Those who attend also will be able to meet with IYRS instructors and staff, get answers to questions about admissions and financial aid, tour the facilities and see student projects that are under way.

The Marine Systems and Composites Technology programs are full-time, nine-month programs.

For information about the open house, contact director of admissions Ned Jones at (401) 848-5777, Ext. 203 or njones@iyrs.org.
