Approximately 45 Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) Rangers, under the command of their instructor, visited the Northern Bahamas Campus. The Rangers were informed of the importance of technical education and the options available at BTVI. Auto Mechanic student Wesley Forde demonstrated how transmissions worked and Welding instructor Moses Wilson did several welding demonstrations.

Grand Bahama Shipyard apprentices hard at work in an Auto Mechanics class at BTVI. BTVI and the Shipyard have partnered for several years; the apprenticeship classes at BTVI include Welding, Pipe Fitting, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Physics and Chemistry.



BTVI seeks to strengthen ties and its position as the country’s premier organisation for career training. BTVI’s credibility has been solidified by its affiliations with major industry partners such as the Grand Bahama Shipyard, Bahamas Oil Refining Company (BORCO) and the Freeport Container Ports, among others. The Container Port’s customised programme in Maintenance Technology allows students to pass the City and Guilds Level 2 Maintenance Technology diploma qualification. The City and Guilds programme requires practical training.

“That’s entry level in engineering. The apprentices should be able to take care of maintenance at the container port once successful,” said Associate Vice President Veronica Collie.
