Falmouth Marine School Cornwall College Duchy College Bicton College CCB Training



Falmouth Marine School has been delivering apprenticeship training to the boatbuilding and shipbuilding industry since 1920, and have been running full-time boatbuilding courses since the early 1970’s. We have the benefit of being positioned at the centre of an extensive maritime industrial area. Many of our past alumni have set up marine businesses in this part of Cornwall, and continue to offer a wide variety of support and employment opportunities for our students.

We have a fully equipped, purpose built F.R.P workshop, which enables us to deliver composite training and upskilling to industry, including; product development, resin transfer moulding, and resin infusion techniques.

Amazing Alumni

Adam Williams
Boatbuilding Apprentice at Pendennis Shipyard

Adam tried to find work in the boatbuilding industry as soon as he left school, but found it difficult as he had no experience at all. The boatbuilding course at Falmouth Marine School changed all of that and gave Adam the skills he needed to progress in the industry.

“I love the practical nature of the course and the opportunity to work on some fantastic projects. My favourite was the restoration of a 40-year-old Cornish rowing association skiff. I now have the skills I need to enter the boatbuilding industry and have secured a job as an apprentice at Pendennis.
