Cabras Marine Corporation (CMC), in partnership with the Guam Community College (GCC), is pleased to announce its first ever Ship Repair Boot Camp slated to start on June 3rd. CMC aims to graduate 20 candidates through this 12-week boot camp comprising of the following classes – welding, painting (preservation), and plumbing (pipefitting). Trade theory instruction will be held at GCC while lab work will take place at CMC’s PACDIM location providing candidates real life learning experiences with ship repair. Upon successful completion of the program, candidates will be offered employment as an Apprentice hire for the trades studied.
On April 17, 2019, CMC presented alongside GCC the intent of the boot camp to the Mayor’s Council of Guam, and the benefits it brings to our island community. Many of the mayors expressed interest and asked for more information to provide to their respective village constituents. This collaboration with GCC is funded through federal grants and reaffirms CMC’s commitment to revitalizing the ship repair industry on Guam through an educated local workforce.
