For anyone who has thought about a career in the marine trades - as a boatbuilder, designer or marine technician - there's a world of top-notch one - and two-year technical programs available. To help examine the possibilities of a career working in and around recreational boats, BoatUS has added a new list of marine trade schools, community colleges and accredited certification programs to the Guide to Marine Education Programs at

The new addition of one - and two-year technical programs to BoatUS' previously-released Guide to Marine Education offering (four-year) college and university marine programs makes learning about educational opportunities easier by having all of the information in one place.

Whether you're just out of high school or looking to start a new boating-related career, you can search the Guide by state or specific focus area, such as marine science, boat design, engine repair, fisheries, oceanography, marine engineering or biology. Only US-accredited post-secondary schools are included. Scholarship information is also offered.

An additional resource is the feature "The Boat Lovers' Guide to Marine Trade Schools," that premieres in the October/November issue of BoatUS Magazine and can be found online at
