Boat Building Academy

Description

Practical, professional or purely for pleasure - come and learn boatbuilding, woodworking, or a variety of skills at the Boat Building Academy in Lyme Regis. Our boat building training courses are ‘hands-on’, taught by experts and vary in length from 1 day to 38 weeks. 38 week course in Boat Building, Maintenance and Support, City & Guilds Level III. Teaching students to build boats to professional standards and offering some students the opportunity to build their own boats as part of the course. Now offering an eight week woodworking course. Based on the same philosophy as our boat building training, the course is intensive, 90% practical and City & Guilds certificated (but with a far wider syllabus). Because it is an 8 week course students minimise expense and loss of earnings while learning advanced skills in the shortest possible time. If you want to change career, learn a new skill, take a sabbatical doing something completely different, need to sharpen your existing skills, have retired and can now do all the things you want to do...or if you just like wood...then we might have the course for you. Range of 1-5 day short courses from Basic Woodwork to Wooden Boat Restoration and from Sail Making to Diesel Engines.
