Education

Marine Service Technology Academy

We are excited about helping to support Miami-Dade County Public School System’s only Marine Service Technologies Program. The program is available at Lindsey Hopkins Technical College and started in August of 2016.

The program creates a huge job creation opportunity for Miami. Click here to read Miami Herald’s article on the launch of the program.

We have 61 boatyards who have a tremendous need for certified repair people for inboard and outboard engines…It’s easy to forget how many stakeholders are in this industry and the amazing potential for job creation it has.

Nathan Kurland

MBF's Board Chair

Students in this program will develop necessary skills and competencies to pursue a career in boat/yacht repair and refinishing occupations within the marine industry. Day and evening classes are offered, and financial aid is available to those who qualify.

Residents in Commissioner Willy Gort’s District/District 1 who plan to attend the program can apply for MBF’s Commissioner Willy Gort Scholarship Program which covers tuition, fees, and course material.

To apply for this program and/or the general MBF Scholarship please contact and book an appointment with Ms. Maggie Descartes, Counselor at Lindsey Hopkins Technical College at (305) 324 6070 ext. 7089 or email MDescartes@dadeschools.net
