Have you wanted to pursue a career on the water and not known where to start? Fishermen’s Alliance is hosting free training for new and beginning fishermen on Cape Cod.
Experienced fishermen members, certified marine safety trainers, and local fisheries experts team up to conduct our introductory level course. The curriculum includes an overview of local fisheries, crew responsibilities and expectations, certification in at-sea safety/survival, basic knot tying, and more! Upon successful completion of the course, trainees receive connections to job opportunities and a gift card to Cape Fishermen’s Supply.
Fishermen’s Alliance has held two pilot training programs to date, as well as several workshops with local high school students, reaching a total of 45 participants. Our online Introduction to Local Fisheries course is anticipated to launch in 2022.
Next in-person training date: to be determined
