The marine industry is in dire need of well qualified technicians. A new Marine Technology program offered by the Orlando, Florida-based Institute of Marine Technology in partnership with Warner University is poised to fill this need by preparing individuals for entry-level technician opportunity.
“Our marine program is being built, with help from industry leaders and top-level dealership and marina representatives, around what the industry needs and expects from future employees. Partnering with Warner University, which has direct access to a 4,274-acre lake for testing purposes, gives us an edge that we feel will help bring new blood and talent to the industry,” says Justin Maley, director of industry relations for the marine program.
Students will be able to pursue two courses of action in the Marine Technology program at Warner University. Both, a Certificate Program and an Associate of Applied Science degree in Marine Technology will be offered. The only requirements are a high school diploma or GED. www.imteducation.com
