Im a student in community college and i have one more semester left until i finish my general education requirements to transfer to a university. While I've been in college, i have been restoring old classic fiberglass runabout boats for fun, and it has introduced me to many different paths that spark my interests and I'm having trouble choosing the correct way. do to the inflation of college tuition, i was looking into joining the coast guard to help cover costs, have a military background for the job market, as well involvement with the maritime world as an MK (mechanic). It is not necessary but it would be a smart financial route to take, however my concern is that i cannot choose where i am stationed after basic training, because i would like to attend the college of my choice here in california. This makes me think i should join the coast guard after i graduate from college as an officer, but somewhere i would like to go to a marine mechanic school and become certified as a marine mechanic to maybe turn my hobbies into some form of a business. i have seen the marine mechanics institute, as well as wyotech but they do not have any schools in california.i also can't find any schools online so i need some help. does anyone know of any marine mechanic school similar to the curriculum of the mmi and wyotech program in CALIFORNIA. i really appreciate any positive input. thanks
