Systems Intensives


The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding is developing a new curriculum to teach Marine Systems. The courses will rely on industry-relevant mock-ups to provide hands-on practical training taught by experienced industry professionals.

Marine Systems Intensives for industry professionals will consist of 2-4 day classes and begins Fall 2017. If you are interested in attending click HERE.

Our longer Marine Systems Program will begin in 2018. If you are interested in attending click HERE.
