Our flagship course leads to the internationally recognised and coveted IBTC Diploma in boatbuilding along with City and Guilds 2463 level 3. This comprehensive course covers all the skills required to build and maintain boats.
With an emphasis on learning through practical application of skills you will work on a wide range of boatbuilding projects, under the expert supervision of our knowledgeable instructors in our working boatyard.
High standards of accuracy and finish are set from the start and all students must successfully complete our Wood Working and Joinery Skills course, which depending on previous experience will take up to 12 weeks (see mid-length courses). You will then move into the boat shed and commence working on a variety of boatbuilding projects. ou will work on a wide range of craft including new builds, restoration and renovation projects. All our boats are real and have real owners ensuring the skills and knowledge you acquire are forged on real projects. We believe this is essential for students to become genuine boat builders.
