Program description
This program prepares students for employment in the marine trades with a focus on two major disciplines: marine mechanics and marine electrical systems. The Marine Maintenance Technology program offers one-year certificates in each of these high demand areas and a two-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree for those who complete coursework in both fields. Ongoing growth in the marine manufacturing and service industry within the pleasure, military, and commercial sectors is driving strong demand for skilled marine technicians. In response to this demand, Skagit Valley College is a member of the Marine League of Schools, a national consortium of marine technology educators providing industry standards-based training and education.
