Women from Camosun College Maritime Trade Sampler Course spent the week learning about recreational and small boats at Quadrant Marine Institute.
We have a new partnership project with Camosun College for their Maritime Trade Sampler Courses. As part of their larger exploration of maritime trades, students spend a week with Quadrant to experience the small craft/recreational side of the industry. This week was dedicated to Women In Trades and we had 13 enthusiastic participants.
Day 1: Abrasives, Adhesives, and Basic Coatings - Sikaflex is an art!
Day 2: Laminating and repairing laminate damage - composites = chemistry.
Day 3: Wiring series & parallel DC electrical circuits (& troubleshooting with multimeters).
Day 4: Onboard systems cover a lot of service work, from outboard motors to large yachts.
Thanks to all our dedicated instructors from Philbrook’s Boatyard, Pilot Marine Yacht Services, Blackline Marine, and Nordik Marine Surveyors.
