The International Yacht Restoration School is holding a pair of open houses at its facilities in Newport and Bristol.
Boatbuilding & Restoration Open House at IYRS
November 8, 2013: IYRS Newport Campus (449 Thames Street, Newport, RI)
Come to IYRS on November 8 for an Open House at the school’s Newport campus. The event runs from 2:00 to 5:00 pm inside Restoration Hall, home to the school’s 20-month Boatbuilding & Restoration program. Attendees will have an opportunity to observe students on the shop floor, meet IYRS instructors, and participate in a question-and-answer session on the application process and financial aid.
Composites Technology & Marine Systems Open House at IYRS
November 15, 2013: IYRS Bristol Campus (253 Franklin Street, Bristol, RI)
Individuals interested in pursuing new career tracks at IYRS will have a chance to step inside the school’s workshops during a November Open House at the Bristol campus. The event will give career seekers an opportunity to see the school’s lab facilities, meet IYRS instructors, and participate in a question-and-answer session on the application process and financial aid. The Bristol facility is home to the school’s Marine Systems and Composites Technology programs. The Composites Technology Program trains students in the theory and hands-on practice of working with composite materials, a method of construction that represents the next generation of building materials in many industries—including aerospace, construction, boat building, automotive and wind energy. The Marine Systems Program teaches students to install, maintain and troubleshoot the onboard systems used on modern and classic boats. Both programs are six months long, beginning in March and September.
