Marine Maintenance Technology Education


Skagit Valley College (SVC) is a public community college, operating under the supervision of a local Board of Trustees appointed by the governor. The district includes Skagit, Island, and San Juan counties. SVC now serves students at the Mount Vernon Campus in Mount Vernon and at the Whidbey Island Campus in Oak Harbor. The college also operates three centers: the South Whidbey Center in Clinton, the San Juan Center in Friday Harbor, and the Business Resource Center in downtown Mount Vernon.

As a Transfer Degree student, you can take your first two years of college at SVC and then transfer to a four-year college or university as a junior. The graduates who go on to universities do as well or better than students who begin college at four-year schools. Or, if your goal is to retool or launch a new career, the college offers Professional/Technical degrees and certificates in some of today’s most in-demand fields.

SVC keeps the class sizes small to allow personal interaction with your instructors and with other students. Faculty members at Skagit Valley College are dedicated to helping you achieve the well-rounded education and up-to-date skills that you expect
