Training College International Boatbuilding Traditional skills, modern thinking LOWESTOFT: ESTABLISHED 1975

Welcome to the International Boatbuilding Training College, Lowestoft where we are proud to offer a wide range of traditional boatbuilding and joinery courses together with shorter courses exploring additional woodworking skills and maritime crafts.

IBTC at Lowestoft

Originally set up in 1975 to train skilled craftsmen to work in the boatyards of Norfolk and Suffolk, our graduates have gone on to manage yards all over the world. Internationally recognised, we are City & Guilds and Edexcel approved and ELCAS registered. High standards of accuracy and finish are set from the start of each course. Our method of training provides the opportunity to work on a wide variety of boats, both large and small, at different stages of construction. Although referred to as a college, due to the way in which training is provided, the overall atmosphere is of a working boatyard, offering a complete 'hands on' experience to all those who attend, vital for those looking to a career in boatbuilding.


All of our courses teach essential skills that can be transferred to careers outside of boatbuilding such as green frame timber construction, conservation building work and furniture making. Of course, you may want to learn new skills for the sheer pleasure of it. Your options are endless. Whatever your existing skill level and interest, the IBTC has a course for you.


We are open 50 weeks of the year so why not come and visit us to see for yourself, please contact us to arrange a date.
