Entry-level enrollment in the boatbuilding programs does not require prior woodworking or boatbuilding experience. However, enrollment in some courses may be contingent on prerequisite course completion or equivalent skill. Prerequisites for individual courses are listed with the course descriptions.
The School will evaluate prior education or experience acquired at other schools. Credits will be awarded based on the specific correlation of the experience or training to the school’s curriculum. See the school catalog for details related to credit transfers.
NWSWB is approved by the U.S. Government to enroll non-immigrant international students. The process of acquiring the needed student visa can be time consuming and foreign students are encouraged to apply several months in advance of their program start date. School transcripts must also be reviewed by an outside agency that will determine if they are comparable to a typical high school diploma. Fees apply.
