“As the Landing School’s Composite Program Instructor, I emphasize the essential foundation necessary to fuel the marine industry with the skilled craftsmen and women that are so greatly needed. I recognize the need for this program in the ever-changing world of boat building and am proud to be part of it.”

Landing School graduate and Composite Boat Building Program Instructor

Career Options for Graduates
The composite industry is one that is pervasive. Everything from wind turbines to furniture to sporting equipment is built using composites. That’s the unique aspect of this program. Although students largely spend their time building composite boats, they also have the chance to build a personal project that could be anything from a carbon fiber unicycle to a 3’ remote controlled boat. Although out students graduate and find themselves in a great variety of careers, come of them come home. Chris Audy enjoyed his studies so much he’s now the Composite Program instructor. Companies where Composite program graudates work include:

  • 3M Composites
  • Aquidneck Custom Composites
  • Hodgdon Defense Composites
  • Oracle Team USA
  • SABRE Yachts
  • Westport Shipyard
  • Viking Yacht Company
