Instead of a Job - Need a CAREER?


Seattle Maritime Academy has open space available for both deck and engine classes. This is unusual for 2022. In previous years we are usually building a wait list by this time. If you know any high school graduates or someone considering a career change learn more about this program! It is 9 months in Ballard followed by a three month at sea internship. The program costs around 10k, yet students can get $300+ a day for the internships. So they pay for school on the internship wages.  Most students after graduation are earning between 60-80k a year.
It's the best deal going. Especially if you consider working for 5 years you can upgrade and get paid almost double, or if you save you could pay for college debt free.
