Do you like fixing mechanical equipment? How about fishing and boating? Our program will train you to become a highly skilled marine technician who can service today’s technically complex outboards, stern drives and personal watercraft.
To be successful as a marine technologist, you need knowledge of machines and tools, problem-solving skills, manual dexterity, and attention to detail. Physical requirements typically include lifting up to 45 pounds, pushing, pulling, reaching, crawling, kneeling, climbing ladders, and working in cramped positions.
SFCC’s Marine Technology program is a partnership between SFCC-Lake of the Ozarks and the Lake Career and Technical Center (LCTC) in Camdenton. General education requirements are taught at SFCC locations and program courses are taught at the LCTC campus.
You can earn an AAS degree via articulation and/or experiential credit. If you’ve graduated from an accredited marine technology or power sports program or have experience in the industry, you can earn up to 45 credit hours toward the Marine Technology degree. Contact us to see if you qualify.
Marine technologists trained in the latest technology are in demand. Salaries range from $32,300 to $47,100 and increase with specialization and experience.
