Effective operation and maintenance of harbors and marinas is dependent on employees having a solid understanding of the marine infrastructure installed at their workplace.
This course will cover major marine structures and building materials found in a harbor or small port. Marine structures are built of materials designed to withstand use in a marine environment.
Understanding the advantages and disadvantages inherent in using each marine building material will help harbor employees make good choices in their maintenance activities.
