Marine Technology Training

Sarah Fisken, Marine Operations Specialist

Vessel operational systems and technology change constantly. Many commercial and recreational boaters rely on education programs to keep up with the changes in technology and equipment. WSG offers classes and workshops on vessel safety, maintenance, and operations. These cover marine refrigeration, corrosion, diesel engine troubleshooting, computers, navigation, and other topics of concern to Washington vessel owners and operators.
The workshops are geared to commercial fishermen, but recreational boaters and others with close ties to the marine environment are invited to participate. Workshops offered include: Marine Corrosion Protection, Marine Hydraulics, Outboard Engine Maintenance, Marine Refrigeration, and Marine Electrical Wiring. For a schedule of upcoming classes or to sign up, contact Sarah Fisken at sfisken@uw.edu.
