    Motorcycle, Marine, and Power Sports  (Bohlen Career & Tech Center)

    Walk through the aisles of any hardware store or home improvement superstore. Stop in to a recreation vehicle dealership. You’ll see an endless and ever-growing supply of outdoor power equipment vehicles. And all that equipment will eventually need a little tweaking, a little maintenance and some repair work. That’s where you come in. After training in the Motorcycle, Marine and Power Sports program, you’ll have the knowledge to function in an entry-level position as a technician, parts person or service writer. And with a little more study and experience, you can become a manager or business owner. This course is also open to adult students. High school students are given first priority for enrollment.
