Pleasurecraft Marine Engine Group, with the support of Watersports Central, presented Lanier Technical College’s Marine Engine Technology program with a new inboard motor to enhance technical training in the classroom.
The Marine Engine Technology program at Lanier Tech is a sequence of courses designed to prepare students for careers in marine engine technology and related fields. Learning opportunities develop academic, technical and professional knowledge and skills required for job acquisition, retention, and advancement. This program, the only marine engine program in the Technical College System of Georgia, emphasizes a combination of marine engine technology theory and practical application necessary for successful employment in the field.
Mark Schneider from Pleasurecraft along with Watersports Central associates were on site to deliver the motor to the program. The 400 horsepower six-liter V8 inboard engine has a Catanium Clean Emissions System (CES) with a Pleasurecraft V-Drive transmission. These features give Lanier Tech’s Marine Engine Technology students the exposure and experience to industry-leading equipment while better preparing them for the workforce.
This opportunity gives our students the ability to learn the fundamentals of mechanical maintenance on inboard marine engines. The Marine Engine Technology program greatly appreciates Pleasurecraft, Watersports Central, and the Lanier Technical College Foundation for facilitating this donation.
“Its our industry partners like Pleasurecraft that make these learning opportunities possible for our students,” said Lanier Tech President, Tim McDonald. “We are proud to provide industry-leading technology to our students to properly prepare them for the everyday challenges of the workforce.”
