Institute at Patriots Point

Patriots Point Logo 4C CMYKPerhaps one of the most unique educational experience in the world is our adult programs aboard the USS YORKTOWN, CV-10 at Patriots Point in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. The 30,000 ton 888 foot WWII vintage aircraft carrier hosts hands-on learning labs, flight simulators, and a variety of other extraordinary teaching environments which immerse students in the learning process while providing an unrivaled educational environment filled with naval history and local Charleston history.

From the Admirals Quarters where students receive instruction in core principles, to the lower deck levels of the ship’s engine room where they will practice asset management or team building techniques, the USS YORKTOWN offers an exceptional and fun educational experience.

The USS YORKTOWN has many unique resources, such as five F35 flight simulators, that enhance the educational experience and translate difficult concepts like team building, effective communication and adaptive situational leadership into concrete references that students and trainers will remember as they apply new skills in the workplace.  Our behavior-based adult facilitators are available to create or help trainers create an optimum educational experience, to include designing and facilitating learning simulations, assisting with content development, and co-facilitating instructor-led learning objectives.

Here are just a few things people had to say about their experience learning with the Institute!

“Having the class on the carrier was an amazing experience.  It created an environment that was fun and exciting and allowed us to observe or model some of the desired ideals in the course.”

“Tons of areas that apply to the class.  Great environment.  The ship adds to the excitement of the class experience.  I have not seen any training like this yet!”

“I really enjoyed how the trainers tied the aspects of the ship into the training.  It allowed for me to apply and use my learning on actual assets in a ‘real word’ environment.  This added to the learning experience as well as keeping me engaged.”
