Episode 30: The Benefits of "Hands On" Experience Training


​In this episode of Marine Tech Talk, we are joined by Brian Bradley, a faculty member of Cape Fear Community College's Marine Technology Program in Wilmington, North Carolina. Cape Fear Community College employs a range of equipment from Teledyne Marine in their program.

Brian teaches Hydrographic Surveying, Marine Instrumentation, and Marine Data Processing, and he also serves as an “at sea" instructor for three of the five oceanographic training cruises students are required to complete during their course of study.

Brian talks about the equipment and the program, and how the combination of the students' classroom and on-water experience creates a much faster and easier transition to the workplace after graduation.
