Your Opportunity Awaits
If you’ve always been intrigued by boats and the water, you don’t have to limit a mechanic career to land. While some who attend classes at ATC will go on to be successful auto mechanics, we have a large number of graduates from our Marine Service Technology program. These graduates have had the opportunity to work on large inboard, outboard, and sterndrive engines from top manufacturers.
While you’ll get this experience working on Honda, Yamaha, and Mercury Marine engines, you’ll also have the chance to learn about the support systems and sub-systems. Knowing about engines can get you far as a marine mechanic. However, you’ll also need to know about electrical systems, plumbing, and gelcoat and fiberglass repair.
The Marine Service Technology program is offered exclusively at our Warminster campus and has been since 2006. If you enjoy the outdoors and perhaps have even owned a boat of your own, you know just how exciting spending time on the water can be. See what a marine mechanic career can offer you.
A Great Career for the Do-It-Yourself Expert
If you’ve always been the kind of do-it-yourself expert who has enjoyed fixing cars, motorcycles, and perhaps even boats, then a career as a marine mechanic may be the perfect fit. You’ll also need to have a strong love for the outdoors. If you’ve enjoyed hanging out on boats and spending time on the water, then a marine mechanic career could lead you to a harbor or marina full-time.
Beyond understanding the nuts and bolts of the job, you’ll also need to be able to explain processes and repairs to boat owners. At ATC, you’ll gain the mechanical knowledge you need to succeed, but we’ll also teach you how to handle the customer service side of things.
