PRLog - Apr. 4, 2011 - APPLETON, Wis. -- APPLETON, WISCONSIN, April 4, 2011 – Explorer’s Guide Maritime Training, based out of Appleton, Wisconsin,was just approved as an eligible training provider through the Bay Area Workforce Development Board under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA).Those who qualify for WIA programs can now receive the necessary education for a merchant mariner’s license (Captain’s license) through Explorer’s Guide to get back into the workforce.

“This is great news,” states Captain Gary Kulibert, lead instructor for Explorer’s Guide Maritime Training.“The addition of this funding adds to the variety of financial assistance options for our students.Displaced workers and other adults affected by lay-offs or business closings in the economic downturn now have a chance to get their Captain’s license and a new start in an exciting career field.”

This Wisconsin approval also permits people in other areas of the country to work with their local workforce development boards and case workers to determine if they qualify for this job retraining opportunity.“With this new approval, we already are helping an individual in Montana get his license for a job in Alaska,” says Kulibert.“This is a terrific opportunity to develop added skills in the competitive maritime trade.”

Explorer’s Guide offers accredited classroom, online, and blended maritime courses. Applicants should meet the minimum USCG requirements for a license.Individualized degree programs in the maritime trade are also available through a partnership with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
