ARUNDEL, Maine – The Landing School’s new Composite Program has been accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology in Arlington, Va., the school reported in a release yesterday.
This accreditation comes after two years of curriculum design, facility planning and fundraising for the program’s launch in September 2007.
The full-time 40-week program is an applications orientated course centered on the study of material properties in a production environment, the operation and control of modern production techniques, and the fabrication skills required to produce high quality composite products.
Approximately one-third of the course is lecture-based, with the remaining two-thirds focused on practical fabrication labs and the construction of a boat using a wide range of composite fabrication techniques and advanced composite materials.
“We have three primary aims in this one-of-a-kind program,” said Steve Dalzell, a member of the curriculum development team and Yacht Design Program manager.
