The schools you mention are more formal and certified ways that would allow you to be marketable, possibly larger marine firms. But they are usually longer than a year. Best solution I found was to work, even part time - weekends, whatever in a boat repair/building shop. You will see all kinds of issues that require sorting out solutions to problems. Once you have some history as having worked in the marine industry, no matter how small the shop then you are marketable to others along your journey. Experience. You may even not get paid just to get the experience. Essentially you offer your labor they offer their equipment and training, so you do get paid in education. After a year of learning OJT you could expect to get a salary.
