The training is ideal for recent graduates and for those looking to begin a new career " applicants must be over 18 years old. For more information, please visit www.sanjuansedc.org/marine.htm

The grant was awarded through the Rural Business Enterprise program of the USDA, which was created to provide adults with job skills training in rural areas.

The official “big check” award ceremony was held at the Port of Friday Harbor, and was attended by Jim Hooper (SJC-EDC President), Melanie Drecksel and Sharon Exley (USDA), SJC Councilmember Lovel Pratt, Town Councilmember Steve Hushebeck, Port of Friday Harbor Commissioners Mike Ahrenius and Greg Hertel, Don Wick (EDASC), Ron Nelson (ICEDC), Victoria Compton (SJC-EDC).
