Marine Eletronics Training and Education at SCLTC Young Memorial Campus
South Central Louisiana Technical College (SCLTC) offers certificates, diplomas, and associate degrees leading to exciting careers for students seeking long-term employment. Students completing technical college training programs leave with a competitive edge needed to acquire a great job. With hands-on competency-based instruction, the students develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to succeed in the job market.
Louisiana’s vocational technical education system originally began as "trade schools" in the thirties and has evolved to vocational schools, vocational technical schools, vocational technical institutions, and at present, technical colleges. This revolution is the result of a redesigned curriculum that blends technical education and applied academics ultimately leading to a certificate, diploma, and/or the Associate of Applied Science Degree, the credential of preference by many businesses, industries, and labor interests.
The SCLTC-Young Memorial Marine Department (H&B Young Marine & Petroleum Safety Training Center) was started in 1960 by local industry to establish a training center for the maritime industry. South Central Louisiana Technical College is accredited by The Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE). The college is also approved by US Coast Guard for marine licensing.
