    Can anybody please inform as to whether there is any type of funding available for an individual who would like to take part in some of the professional training and cetitficate granting educational programs now available. Bursary, scholarships, grants or any organizational funds or any other types. I have been in the FRP/boatbuilding industry here in Canada for approx. 25yrs and at a point where professional credentials are becoming a necessity for futher advancement. Am a dual citizen (U.S./Canada). Thanks

    If you are in the industry now, or can get back in the proper place, employers have been known to help with education. You get the ed, they get a more valuable employee.
