Boating AtlanticMarine Service Technician Certification 3-day Prep Course for Trade Qualifiers: March 10-12 in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia (location TBA). NS Apprenticeship will be there on the final day of the course to guide participants through the application for Certification.

To help eligible candidates prepare for the certification exam, a three-day preparatory course is being offered in March 2020. The course will explain and review the different marine service disciplines included in the trade standard (curriculum standard) and provide information and examples of typical multiple-choice questions to help applicants know what to expect.

Reasons for taking the course prior to writing the certification exam:

1. The scope of the MST trade is broad and it is important to know what topics are included on the exam, as people may encounter different parts of the trade in different work environments. The course will help you be prepared for the topics that will be covered.

2. Having Certified MSTs in your company will set you apart from the competition and be helpful for business. It also helps to recruit and retain new employees who are interested in apprenticeship.

3. The course is sponsored by Boating Atlantic and the Nova Scotia Boatbuilder Association and is free to members of both organizations. A nominal fee will apply to other participants.
 
In order to qualify for certification the  Marine Service Technician must:
-Have a minimum of 10,800 hours of hands-on work experience or approximately 6 years in all aspects of the Trade that can be proved.
-Contact a Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Training Consultant to review qualifications, and apply for certification.
-Write a 120 question certification exam.
