In order to bolster the island’s labor force, the Guam Community College, in conjunction with the Cabras Marine Corporation, launched its second Ship Repair Transportation Boot Camp.

After the success of its first training program, the boot camp welcomes 20 participants and three alternates who will be trained in various trades and career skills such as carpentry, welding, and plumbing.

Those who graduate from the program will then be hired as apprentices by Cabras Marine to become professionals in their selected trade.

According to a release, the boot camp was established to address the shortage in the ship repair industry and ensure that skilled ship repair apprentice candidates are selected and trained from our community.
