A career as a marine mechanic can be rewarding, exciting, and challenging. To prepare for your career, you’ll need to attend a marine mechanic school near Wrightsville, PA. Why not make that school Automotive Training Center?
We’ve been training future marine mechanics at our Warminster campus for years and look forward to welcoming new students. Here’s a closer look at what the career of a marine technician is like and what you can expect when you’re enrolled at ATC.
The Life of a Marine Mechanic
Each day, you will have the opportunity to work on inboard engines that power fishing boats, motorboats, and even yachts. While you may become an engine expert, we seek to ensure all marine technicians who graduate from ATC are well-versed in a range of repairs. You’ll gain a full understanding of support systems and sub-systems like air conditioning, heating, electrical, and plumbing.
Sure, a water vessel needs care from time to time so it runs well, but it should look great, too. For instance, fiberglass damage to a boat can be a real drag. Fiberglass and gelcoat technicians fix those chips, dents, and other damages.
If you love the outdoors and would enjoy spending your days working close to the water, then seeking out a career as a marine technician is a great idea.
Learn From Experienced Instructors
Our marine instructors have years of experience when it comes to repairing and maintaining inboard, outboard, and sterndrive engines. ATC is a test site and training location for well-known industry names, like Mercury Marine and Yamaha Outboard. Our marine-dedicated Warminster campus features the latest tools and equipment, and students will have the opportunity to study how watercraft engines work and how their sub-systems operate.
Whether you’re working on replacing a boat propeller or identifying and solving engine issues, you’ll get plenty of hands-on experience at ATC in the shop working with our knowledgeable instructors.
You’ll also spend plenty of time in the classroom learning proper techniques and then have the chance to apply them in the shop. We’ve seen many “lightbulb going off” moments over the years, and that’s truly a special feeling for everyone.
