Training Programs

Marine Career Training

  • Marine Service Technician (30 weeks- 918 hours): Students receive a well-rounded education in the maintenance and repair of outboard engines, diesel engines, stern drives, and related marine systems, integrating some ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council) standards. MTTI’s Marine Service Technician program mirrors the seasonal trends of the actual Marine industry. For example, at the end of the boating season, the class winterizes and shrink-wraps the boats. Similarly, larger engine projects will be completed inside during the winter months, just as the marine industry does. While you attend MTTI’s Marine Service Technician program you will spend approximately 60 percent of your time in the shop completing jobs you can expect to see when employed in the industry.
  • MMTET Scholarship: Massachusetts residents, who are high school seniors or graduates, and are enrolled in MTTI’s Marine Service Technician program with the intent of entering or continuing to work in the recreational marine industry in Massachusetts, are encouraged to apply for an MMTET Scholarship. MMTET (Massachusetts Marine Trades Educational Trust) is the caretaker of the William Armstrong Scholarship Awards, which are up to 00.
