Boat building school grows rapidly in Great Lakes region


The Great Lakes Boat Building School in Cedarville, MI, is exploding and bringing the entire community along for the ride. The need for highly trained marine technicians to operate and maintain the technological components of boats has grown steadily since the port’s opening in 2005, when it first opened.

Experts estimate that the expansion of the Great Lakes Boat Building School, in order to meet the increased demand, could bring an additional $2.5 million to the residents of Cedarville.

The school began as a hobbyist-focused institution, but it has since expanded to include two professional degrees: marine service technology and marine electronics technology, and it has been certified by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges as having met academic requirements for awarding scholarships.

The school’s boat building and marine service technology programs are now accepting applications from students who are on a waitlist for the first time this year.

According to the school’s website, a recent $2.7 million grant from the United States Economic Development Administration will enable the nonprofit school to build an additional facility to accommodate the increased applicant pool. Currently, the boat school enrolls approximately 25 students per year, with enrollment expected to more than double with the addition of the new facility.
