Yacht restoration school - Open House in January

'IYRS'    .

No matter which country you come from, if you are interested in pursuing a career in boat building and restoration, there could be no better experience than the International Yacht Restoration School(IYRS) in Rhode Island. Individuals interested in pursuing new career tracks at IYRS will have a chance to step inside the school’s workshops during two January Open Houses.

These two events will give career seekers an opportunity to meet with IYRS staff, observe students at work, and review the school’s programs before applying for spring or fall 2013 admission.

On Tuesday afternoon, January 8, the doors to Restoration Hall on the school’s Newport campus at 449 Thames Street will be open from 4 pm to 6:30 pm.

The Newport campus is home to the school’s 20-month Boatbuilding & Restoration program, where students are trained to restore classic wooden boats and develop craftsmanship skills that are highly valued by today’s woodworking trades. Open House attendees will observe students at work from 4 to 5 pm, meet with instructors from 5 to 5:30 pm, and talk with staff about the admissions process and financial aid from 5:30 to 6:30 pm.

Tuesday, January 8th: Boatbuilding & Restoration Open House - Newport Campus - 4-6:30pm

Wednesday, January 16th: Marine Systems & Composites Technology Open House - Bristol Campus - 4-6:30pm

Tuesday, February 12th: Marine Systems & Composites Technology Open House - Bristol Campus - 4-6:30pm

4-5pm: Observe the Students on the Shop/Lab Floor
5-5:30pm: Meet the Instructors
5:30-6:30pm: Application and Financial Aid Q&A and Assistance

The Bristol facility is home to the school’s Marine Systems and Composites Technology programs. The Bristol Open House will follow the same schedule, providing attendees an opportunity to observe students at work and a chance to meet with faculty and staff.

Both the Marine Systems and Composites Technology programs are six-month programs; the next session of these two programs begins on March 7, 2013.

The Composites Technology program trains students in the theory and hands-on practice of working with composite materials, a method of building that produces structures with a high strength-to-weight ratio. Composites represent the next generation of building materials in many industries—including aerospace, construction, boat building, automotive and wind energy.

The Marine Systems program teaches students to install, maintain, and troubleshoot the onboard systems used on modern and classic boats, such as electrical, electronic, fuel, propulsion, and steering systems. Developed with the marine trades and the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC), the program prepares students to sit for relevant ABYC certifications, a gold-medal standard in the industry.

Mentoring opportunities that give individuals who have already submitted an application a chance to shadow an IYRS student are available on Open House days.

For more information about the Open Houses, mentoring opportunities or IYRS programs, visit www.iyrs.org or contact Admissions Team Leader Holly Ashton at hashton@iyrs.org.

About IYRS:
A leading trade school based in Rhode Island, IYRS attracts a diverse, international student body to its three programs in Boatbuilding & Restoration, Marine Systems and Composites Technology. All programs employ an education model based on a highly technical, craft-oriented learning experience that also teaches important career skills such problem-solving, teamwork, project management and critical thinking. The school focuses on the building arts and sciences across a broad range of materials used in many industries—from wood to state-of-the-art composites. The Composites Technology Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. Through a partnership with Roger Williams University in Bristol (R.I.), IYRS students can now apply elective credits toward associate and bachelor’s degree programs at the university’s School of Continuing Studies. IYRS has campuses in historic Newport and Bristol.
