TSC'S blended curriculum uses an impactful mix of online coursework, professional development coaching, and USCG credential support to set students up for successful careers on the water.  


Students complete eight modules of uniquely designed distance learning curriculum on Thinkific, where they work through entry-level maritime education with an online instructor. Coursework takes 8 weeks and is self paced throughout each week.


Topics of this course include entry-level deckhand skills, basic engine room lessons, and professional development exercises. At the end of this phase (depending on timing), students will submit the necessary paperwork for their Merchant Mariner Credential with an OS rating, have developed a maritime resume and will have already investigated jobs in the maritime field.  

Once students have completed their online coursework, they are encouraged to continue their education onboard a Grays Harbor Historical Seaport vessel or alternate tall ship as Volunteer Crew to gain hands-on experience.
