The Get SMART Summer Maritime Workshop will provide participants with basic maritime knowledge and SMART materials to help develop or expand academic courses/pathways, and share information with students about careers in the industry. The maritime and transportation industry is critical to our nation’s economy and security and is facing a serious workforce gap. Participants will tour industry workplace sites that are off-limits to the public, such as shipyards and ports, as well as networking with some of our top maritime and transportation employers.

The workshop is for Secondary STEM and CTE educators, college faculty, guidance counselors, career coaches, and administrators that have not attended a previous Get SMART Workshop or SMART Institute.

Applications are now open and will close Friday June 29th, 2018 at 5pm. Click here to complete the application.

Cost: There is no fee to attend the Get SMART Summer Maritime Workshop (lunch will be provided on the first 2 full days). All travel expenses will be covered by the participant.

Please email Tobey Anne Allen, Outreach and Education Manager, at tallen@tcc.edu with any questions about the workshop.
