IYRS offers technical training for individuals interested in working in the marine industry and related fields, with three full-time programs and continuing education courses. The school maintains two campuses in Rhode Island, in Newport and Bristol. Each locale is uniquely suited to the programs offered there. The waterfront campus in Newport is home to the Boatbuilding & Restoration program and includes two historic buildings and the restoration of the rare 1885 schooner yacht Coronet. The Bristol teaching facility is home to the Marine Systems and Composites Technology programs and is located at the Franklin Street Marine Corridor, an industrial/educational complex where students mix with marine-industry companies.
