Essential Skills Training for the 
Recreational Marine Industry

marine technical training 
developed and led by industry experts


Quadrant Marine Institute Inc. is a private training facility for boat and yacht building, repair, and maintenance. We design and deliver apprenticeship training for technicians employed in the recreational marine industry. 

We are an approved trainer for the Industry Training Authority of British Columbia (ITA) and our extensive training resources are used by the Nova Scotia Boatbuilders Association (NSBA) for their Marine Service Technician apprenticeship program.

Quadrant’s approach to industrial training is competency based and relies heavily on workplace assessment. Assessment of a trainee’s progress is based on observations by the employer, on the job.

Developing training since 1999, we have created an extensive suite of learning materials that cover a broad range of subjects related to boat service and repair. These serve as background for practical training, and cover the basics of design, materials, installations, and much more. 

Quadrant is based in Sidney, BC, Canada, a major centre for boat building and marine repair on the Pacific Coast. We also provide training at our satellite facility on Granville Island, Vancouver, BC. 

We are always ready to consult and collaborate with other organizations in the delivery of recreational marine industry training.
