19 Apprentices Complete GCC’s Ship Repair Boot Camp


Great news for the Cabras Marine Corporation, as 19 apprentices join the company following the completion of the Guam Community College’s ship repair boot camp I.

Yesterday, GCC celebrated the 19 graduating individuals from the 11-week program with a completion ceremony at the Cabras Marine Corporation training facility in Piti.

The boot camp, which began in May, offered intensive training designed to prepare participants as entry-level employees at the corporation as electricians, diesel mechanics, and carpenters.

Regarding the successful partnership, GCC President Dr. Mary Okada and President of Cabras Marine Corporation stated, respectively:

“The leveraging of commitment has brought us to where we are today. The commitment comes not just from us who provide the service but from every one of these individuals that have taken the time out of their busy schedules to make a commitment to do this boot camp.”

“We invite the community, we invite our new graduates into our apprentice program, to continue developing their interests and skills to support a growing need on our island.”
