I recently turned in all of the necessary application materials for the Workboat Academy. I am super excited about this because it seems to be the perfect fit for me. I have read just about everything I can about the program and understand that acceptance is contingent on having a Partner Company take you on as a cadet/apprentice. That sort of changes the game compared to applying to any other educational program where you have a pretty clear picture or timeline of when you will find out if you are accepted to the school and when you can begin your studies.
Does anyone here who has had the opportunity to attend the Academy know more or less how long it could take for me to hear back anything? I am interested to start in Baltimore in October. As I type this it is the end of May. I wonder if I have applied soon enough.
