Working Waterfront Coalition’s launching a new training program


Our friends at The Working Waterfront Coalition of Whatcom County are launching a new apprenticeship program based on the Canadian model from Quadrant Marine Institute. Port Townsend’s marine trades can benefit by learning more about these programs and identifying local opportunities.

The Northwest Maritime Apprenticeship program, utilizing Quadrant Marine Institute’s time-tested, robust, professional training program, gained provisional approval from the Washington Apprenticeship and Training Council. The program trains Marine Service Technicians with the skills, knowledge and experience to service the small recreational, and commercial craft industries for vessels up to 150’. Partnering with prominent businesses in the maritime sectors from Bellingham and Whatcom County, the Apprenticeship will be launching in the fall of 2022.

Check out the Presentation to the Port of Bellingham Commissioners (26:00), on April 19th, 2022. Watch for more information about the launch of the Northwest Maritime Apprenticeship this fall.
