Program Description:
The Transportation Technology Program provides a specialized distance learning education and training for the student or current industry
employee having an interest in the transportation field. This unique on-line, distance learning and life experience curriculum breaks the tether
to the traditional classroom. It is designed to support a drop-in/out lifelong learning philosophy of continuing education and laddered
degree options from a certificate of achievement for specific skill sets to an Associate’s , Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in transportation
studies. In addition to formal academic credit the program is designed to accept related credit equivalency from any academic vocational or
industry training program to include documented life-long learning skills, test-out exam, industry recognized certifications, and/or continuing
education units (CEU’s). The Maritime Technology option provides training for becoming a deckhand, tankerman, captain, or engineer who
works on a vessel. These employees operate and maintain civilian owned deep-sea merchant ships, tug boats, towboats, ferries, barges,
offshore supply vessels, cruise ships and other waterborne crafts. Some merchant mariners spend extended periods at sea while others
operate boats close to port and can go home at night.
Career Outlook:
Overall employment of water transportation workers is projected to grow 8 percent from 2016-2026, about as fast as the average for all
occupations. Initiatives to expand the use of water transportation and federal laws and subsidies to ensure that there alwyas will be a fleet of
merchant ships with U.S. flags for national defense should increase the need for these workers.
Salary Forecast:
For the most current salary information please refer to the Bureau of Labor Statistics “Occupational Outlook Handbook” found at
