About Marine Services

Marine Services is a hands-on curriculum focused on the skills necessary for employment in the marine industry. Our program is based at the Anacortes Campus next to the Cap Sante Marina and the waterfront. Students will learn safe boat handling & navigation skills, maintenance & preservation of vessels, manufacturing materials, Gelcoat & fiberglass repair, basic marine electrical & electronics, introduction to marine propulsion & engines, boat trailer usage & repair, marina operations, and customer service skills.

While in the program, students are able to earn the Washington State Safe Boating Program Certification and First Aid/CPR/AED certification.

Meet the Teacher

Wesley Fridell

I am a local native of Washington state, growing up and attending school on south Whidbey Island. I attended the University of Washington in Seattle.

I have spent my entire working career in the Marine Industry. I was a member of Skagit Valley College's Marine Tech technical advisory committee (TAC), beginning in 2000.

My relationship with the NCTA and its programs began nearly 15 years ago, as I volunteered to serve on the General Advisory Committee. It's been my pleasure to instruct the Marine Services program from the Anacortes campus, since 2014. I have a deep passion for everything that is boating and marine-related.

  • Relevant Learning

    The NCTA Marine program literally saved my son. He was desperate for some kind of school that made sense and where the learning was relevant. Marine services did that for him.
