Just as there are different license progressions to
follow, there are different educational paths out there.
Look at captains with 1600 ton licenses. Some start
as a deckhands and work their way up the ladder,
earning 100 ton, 200 ton and additional licenses and
endorsements along the way. On the other hand,
some graduate from a maritime school with an
unlimited third’s license and go through a specialized
program at the school, or through a towing company,
to qualify for the 1600 ton license. The point is, both
paths get the captains to where they want to be. And
along those lines, there are educational programs out
there to suit most people’s age, budget and needs.

If you’re looking for basic training and education to get
your foot in the door, look around before you open your
checkbook. Some companies, like Kirby Marine, have
set up their own training centers. Kirby’s program
includes hands-on training and classroom instruction.
It’s a serious program and you have to pass
examinations to graduate. But the industry has
become serious about recruiting and investing in a
quality workforce.

If you’ve poked around this site, you realize that not
every maritime job means going to sea on a vessel. If
you don’t like the idea of going to sea, but like the idea
of designing ships, a four year college like Webb
Institute might be a suitable choice. If you’re interested
in a technical position in a shipyard, but aren’t
interested in four years of engineering, look into
vocational training at nearly community colleges. Many
community colleges have enhanced their curriculums
to include programs such as mechanical technology,
electrical technology, welding technology and other
disciplines.
