For Potential Apprentices

If you are looking for a certified Boat Builder (BB) or Marine Service Technician (MST) to mentor you through an apprenticeship, you can find a list of NSBA members with certified BBs or MSTs here: Complete list. Please note that other companies have certified BBs and MSTs who are not NSBA members but it is more difficult for us to maintain information about non-NSBA members.
