IYRS shortens two of its programs

The International Yacht Restoration School shortened its marine systems and composites technology programs to a six-month curriculum, officials announced.

“One of the biggest financial challenges for our students is not just coming up with tuition — for which there are loans, scholarships, and veteran benefits — but being out of work and not having an income,” IYRS president Terry Nathan said in a statement. “Adjusting our programs to a six-month time frame creates great opportunity for more people: Students will spend less time out of work and have quicker routes to promising careers.”

The programs are based at the school’s Bristol, R.I. facility. In each program, students get prepared to take national, industry-recognized certification exams that are valuable credentials for job seekers.

Both programs were formerly on a nine-month, academic-year calendar, but will now offer students the flexibility of two start dates. The first session runs from September to February and the second session runs from March to August. Graduates will be entering the job market in the spring and fall, which are the busiest seasons in the marine industry.

This new schedule begins in September
