“What I’m doing is not my dream. I have no passion for it.”

If you’ve ever caught yourself saying this, realize that you are not alone – IYRS appeals to a wide variety of individuals who are not satisfied with their professional lives and career path, and choose to be a “career changer.” IYRS can help you move towards the intersection of your personal passion and your professional career.

“Yes, this is where I belong.”

Once you walk onto our Newport, Rhode Island campus, into historic Restoration Hall, or our brand new waterfront build space, The Brook Building, it hits you – this is exactly where you belong. At IYRS, you’ll utilize the skills you’ve built throughout your career, and apply them to a craft you love. One of the most unique features of our classroom is the skill and knowledge diversity of our students, who learn from each other as much as they learn from us. Yes, this is absolutely where you belong.


“It’s not too late, it’s never too late.”

People often forget that they are in complete control of their lives. You’re not too old, you’re not too inexperienced and our programs do not require that you have an extensive background in math, science, or craftsmanship. All you need is the comfort of working with your hands, willingness to learn, and a desire to create things that work, all in a supportive and experiential environment.

“I’ve yet to achieve everything I had hoped to achieve.”

Retail managers, project managers, architects, engineers, automotive technicians, software writers, and many more come through IYRS to pursue a career fueled by passion. Many career-changers do not feel fulfilled by their current career and look to IYRS as a means to a more fulfilling and satisfying career option.
