Have you ever thought of owning your own business? Highly motivated students have the opportunity of becoming a business owner. Market research is necessary to determine the need from the following areas: chainsaw, lawn & garden, ATV, motorcycle, snowmobile, or marine dealerships. Perhaps an independent repair shop along with buying and selling used equipment would be profitable. This program may also be the stepping stone to post-secondary education such as Motorcycle Marine Institute or a business degree at a college or university.

Those with an interest in racing dirt bikes or snowmobiles, as well as those who simply want to learn how to maintain their own equipment, will benefit from this program. The Maine Warden Service recommends this program for troubleshooting and repairing your own equipment. The field of landscaping or arborist is another area where this knowledge would prove helpful.

Outdoor Power is a two-year program with 70% lab and 30% classroom. Positive attitude, willingness to learn and good attendance are all necessary for success.
