Welcome to the Marine / Oil and Gas Center of Excellence
The Marine / Oil and Gas Center of Excellence was started in 1960 by local
industry to establish a training center for the maritime industry. The
marine department was located on a donated ship tied to the Front Street
docks in Morgan City. Throughout the years the Oil field grew and the needs
of industry changed. With the changes in industry the department changed also.
In 1972 the Marine Department moved to the Young Memorial Campus on Youngs
Road. Since then the department has stepped forward to establish itself with
a can do reputation.
In 2005 the Marine / Oil and Gas Center of Excellence moved a portion of
training to the new 3225 Youngs Road site. The new site offers water front
access for training. Located on the new site is, a hydraulic crane, a
flashover fire trainer, GMDSS lab, and state of art Radar simulation lab.
The Marine / Oil and Gas Center of Excellence was established by industry to
meet the training needs of offshore workers, and these needs are met daily.
