    Hello Hello,
    first post here. I need some helping regarding finding boat building schools. I am currently living in new zealand(not as a resident) and am originally from Italy. i would love to start a career in boatbuilding and have been looking at schools here in NZ and Australia. problem is that i cant apply for apprenticeships(the main pathway to boatbuilding) as a non resident and the few places that do offer long courses are extremely expensive... So i started thinking maybe i should expand my horizons and start looking for courses elsewhere.
    I have heard that norway has an excellent reputation for wooden boatbuilding and with a eu passport should make things easier. Could anyone recommend some quality schools that offer a great foundation towards a boatbuilding career? Would be great to hear some suggestions.
    Thanks

    wooden boatbuilding school options but also places that offer apprenticeships would be great. i'd rather learn while making a bit of money on the side....
