Rock the boat with the technical training you need to advance as a professional mariner.
What is Marine Technology?
For years, it was not uncommon for a deckhand on a towboat with no higher education to work his way up the ladder to become a Captain or Chief Engineer. Today as technologies are added and new U.S. Coast Guard regulations are put into place, individuals are finding that working on Americas Inland Waterways requires not only a love of the waterways but also a commitment to continuous learning.
The Marine Technology program gives the professional mariner the opportunity to rise above the crowd and establish themselves as a leader in the Industry as well as improve their opportunities to advance professionally. The curriculum for the Marine Technology program is taught online with flexible schedules to accommodate the ever changing schedules of the mariner.
