This program offers a concentrated understanding of 2 and 4 stroke cycle engine principles and design, with a significant hands-on component that will allow individuals to develop practical and technical skills to meet the current needs of the recreational marine service industry, and that will provide a basis to respond to emerging trends in the field. Finally, students will become effective communicators and problem solvers who will have an awareness of environmental issues, effective customer service, and basic business operations. Once the one-year certificate has been achieved, the graduate may return for further specialization.
