Marine Industry Day for Broward BRACE Advisors January 30, 2019
On Thursday, January 10th, MIASF partnered with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance to hold a Marine Industry Day for Broward County’s BRACE Advisors (Broward Advisors for Continuing Education). Many thanks to the speakers from RPM Diesel, RMK Merrill-Stevens, Ward’s Marine Electric, Maritime Professional Training, and Water Taxi Fort Lauderdale. The BRACE Advisors immediately recognized the opportunities in the marine industry and engaged the speakers with questions regarding career paths for each of their various industry segments. Sean Gallagan from Broward College and John Flanagan from MPT discussed where students could receive the training required for different industry careers, while Brittani Severn from RMK, Adam Shattenkirk from Ward’s, Peter Berkley from RPM and Bill Walker from Water Taxi talked about what they look for in potential employees. This gave the advisors great information to take back to their students to better direct them toward marine industry careers.
