BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – Spinweber’s Marine Training Center will begin offering one-year technical training courses for marine technicians this August at a 12,000 square-foot training facility in Boynton Beach, Fla., the school said in a recent press release.

The school hosted an open house at the end of May to introduce the program, designed to fill the growing need for qualified marine mechanics in South Florida. The training program is scheduled to begin Aug. 20 and conclude June 13, 2008.

Barry Spinweber, who has more than 27 years experience in the marine industry including 16 years as a service manager and 15 years as a certified vocational instructor at South Tech, gave a presentation on the school’s curriculum during the open house. The coursework will begin with basic instruction on engine identification and necessary tools through two- and four-stroke theory on all major brand name engines.
