CCRI now accepting applicants to its free maritime career training program

Posted

CCRI’s Division of Workforce Partnerships, in partnership with the Oliver Hazard Perry Rhode Island and the United States Maritime Resource Center (USMRC), is now accepting applications for its 20-day free training program that looks to provide basic marine manufacturing experience and help students find career opportunities in both afloat and ashore career tracks.

Hands-on training will include marine systems, basic maritime electrical, diesel/gasoline engines, plumbing, hydraulics, carpentry, OSHA maritime, and rigging. The course includes the basic STCW and firefighting training, provided by the USMRC, that would help prepare students to work on vessels while they are at sea.

Graduates that complete this program will receive job placement assistance and can expect to begin careers as merchant mariners, boat builders, production workers, industrial painters, marine techs, marine electronics installers, shrink wrappers, wind maintenance techs, and more.

The first cohort of the Maritime Career Training Program experienced a 75 percent job placement within three months of completion in the maritime and composites fields.

There are four weeks of training, full time from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., for a total of 20 days, located in Newport. The deadline to apply is Friday, Oct. 15. Classes begin Monday, Oct. 18.
