Maritime professional development program
We offer a maritime professional development program for middle to upper-middle level staff from counterpart agencies responsible for maritime related activities.
The program aims to strengthen relationships between maritime safety agencies and assist in the transfer of skills and knowledge between participants. The two-week program is held each year during October and will provide participants with opportunities to:
- meet with technical experts to learn about Australia’s approach to a range of ship safety, marine environment protection, and search and rescue activities
- meet with participants from other international maritime organisations
- share comparitive approaches to issues of mutual interest.
Why train with us?
We are Australia’s national agency responsible for maritime safety. We have a long history of providing technical cooperation in the international maritime community, particularly in the Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean regions. Our technical cooperation program recognises the importance of developing skills that can be shared for mutual benefit to strengthen ship and seafarer safety, protect the marine environment and improve the coordination of search and rescue services.
