Every year, CIBC hires over 10 seasonal students for our summer programing. The CIBC instructional team is enthusiastic, energetic and diverse. All of our seasonal students looking to enhance their educational experience. This allows students the opportunity to have an interdisciplinary experience not associated with their respective majors while also enriching the lives of the people in the local community. Many students bring their own experience, expertise and individual personality to the program, but all are united by a shared passion for boating education and safety, as well as a commitment to enhancing the experiences of each participant.
