IYRS to hold open house for training programs

The International Yacht Restoration School will open the doors of its Bristol, R.I., facility April 29 for an open house.

The event, which runs 4-7 p.m., provides an opportunity to learn about IYRS training programs, as well as skills in demand in the current marketplace.

A seminar, titled "Marine Training: The Value of Education in a Technically Advancing Field," will be held at 4:30 p.m.

The seminar will be lead by IYRS instructors John Stier and Henry Elliot, who oversee, respectively, the IYRS Marine Systems and Composite Technology programs. Each instructor will take a closer look at their respective fields in an effort to give career-seekers the guidance they need to navigate these technically evolving fields.
