Classes & Workshops

GREAT News, we are offering classes this fall!

September 2021

Cruisers College had to take a season off due to Covid, but we’re back in session. We’ve published 9 courses for fall, and a few more are in the works.

Many popular topics have returned, and some new ones added as well. You can learn about electrical, anchor, navigation, weather & more – we’re excited to see you back in the classrooms. As a public school we’ll be following the state guidelines for covid protocol, currently requiring masks when inside.

In December we’ll have a much requested “Women’s Only” course. [Details coming early October, but save the date, Dec 12th]

UPDATE: When can we take classes again?

May, 2021

We’ve been getting lots of inquiries about upcoming events as we work through this pandemic.

We are working currently for a full Fall schedule and getting courses and staff lined up, that is good news!

However, we won’t be publishing the schedule and courses until August to make sure all the public guidelines for schools can be followed.

Stay tuned, enjoy your summer, and we hope to see you in our courses this Fall.
