Northwest Maritime Academy Offers ‘Training Trainers’ Class
Seattle Maritime Academy, Ballard, WA ~ Dec. 3-7, 2018
Mariners, here’s your chance to get in on a class that can mean extra income between sea assignments. It can be difficult to come across this one because you need it only once in your career, and it’s coming to the Seattle area in early December.
It’s the Training Trainers class, a five-day course offered by the Northwest Maritime Academy at the Seattle Maritime Academy in Ballard. Cost is $995, plus a 10 percent discount applies, points out Capt. Benjamin Garman, administrator of the Northwest Maritime Academy.
He talks about the upcoming Training Trainers class on his NWMA Weekly podcast with Chance Busey of Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard.

The class is for anyone who wishes to teach in the maritime industry, Garman explains.
“If you want to sign your name on a certificate that enables someone else to raise their license to another level, then you have to have a class — and that class is called Train the Trainer,” says Capt. Ben, who holds a 200 Ton Masters License. “You are allowed to teach up to your license level.”
The class is taught by the Northwest Maritime Academy’s Capt. Patrick Boyle, who has about 20 years of experience teaching maritime classes.
“He does a really good job,” says Capt. Garman, “and he’s a great person to learn this from, so this is a pretty good opportunity.”

“This is a lifetime Trainer certification and you can teach on your vacations, maybe picking up an extra couple thousand bucks when not at sea,” he says on the podcast.
