Marine Technology


A shipyard

Keeping with the maritime traditions of Pamlico County, PCC is offering a comprehensive Marine Technology program. The courses currently being offered are:

Boat Motor Technician

The Boat Motor Technician courses are designed to provide instruction for the repair and maintenance of outboard motors, inboard engines, stern drives, and jet propulsion systems. Core topics will cover outboard models and makes; electrical ignition components; fuel tank, lines, and pumps; oil blend systems; carburetor systems; four-cycle inboard marine and diesel engines; and electrical/fuel systems and coolant systems. Upon completion, students should be able to identify, troubleshoot, maintain and repair various marine engines.

Marine Electronics, Cabinetry, & Diesel Motor

As resources become available, the Marine Technology program will be offering training focused on boat building and repair: composites; marine wood working; and rigging. In addition to the building and maintenance of the maritime vessel, there are classes being designed to train in aspects of commercial fishing. One training program to be delivered in the near future is fishing net making and repair.

PCC is proud of the maritime history of Pamlico County and wants to uphold its strong tradition by training the next generation of mariners and those who keep them afloat.
