Marine Technician Training

Roughly 78% of the world is covered by water, which is traveled by thousands of ships every day. The job of a marine technician is to keep those ships in the condition necessary to continue to traverse the seas.

Marine technicians provide maintenance, repairs, and inspection for boats and ships of all sizes and shapes. They are trained with the equipment needed to inspect, diagnose, test, and repair all of the following boat and ship parts:
  • Engines
  • Propellers
  • Sails
  • Rigging
  • Masts
  • Electrical Systems
  • Steering Systems
  • Navigational Equipment
  • Refrigeration Equipment
  • Sanitation Equipment
  • Hulls
As a marine technician you may find yourself stationed at a port or on a dock, using heavy equipment to lift ships out of the water and provide repairs in dry dock. This is the primary way that hulls are inspected, cleaned, repaired, and repainted. Alternatively, many marine technicians are actually stationed on a single ship, in order to provide inspection, maintenance and repair for that ship throughout its ocean travels.

Requirements to Become a Marine Technician

The minimum requirement to become a marine technician is a high school diploma or a GED. Many employers prefer that candidates have additional training in vocational work, especially machine repair and blueprint reading. These are skills that can be picked up in some high school vocational programs, but employers generally prefer candidates to have two-year degrees from vocational programs specifically in boat repair and maintenance.

If you are interested in a life on the sea maintaining and repairing ships, a technical school that offers training for marine technician skills will give you an edge in this job field.
