The Massachusetts Marine Trades Association (MMTA), through their educational trust initiative, has launched a new website to help connect interested individuals to marine trade training and careers. Scholarships are available for high school students or graduates who are Massachusetts residents and intend to pursue careers in the marine industry. If you enjoy hands on work and have a passion for boating a career in the marine trades could be for you.
