AMC's new Sydney Study Centre has been abuzz with maritime industry activity over the last month.

In March, the study centre held its first professional short course and also played host to a lively maritime industry event.

AMC Search, the commercial arm of the Australian Maritime College, ran a three-day Security Officer course from the study centre, which is located inside the Australian National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour.

AMC Search CEO Dean Cook said that running maritime training from Sydney, as well as from Launceston and at clients’ premises, is designed to provide industry with greater flexibility.

“AMC Search aims to provide maritime training as and when the industry need it. Offering courses in Sydney helps us provide more choice and convenience for organisations and individuals across the country who need maritime training,” Mr Cook said.

Over 60 people from the maritime industry also came together at a networking event hosted by AMC Search on Thursday, 1 March.

Organisations spanning defence, ports, shipping, renewable energy, pilotage and more gathered to find out about the training and education on offer from Sydney.

Mr Cook said the event was a fantastic opportunity to meet industry colleagues and find out more about their training and education needs.

“I’d like to thank everyone that came along and contributed to such a vibrant event; it was great to see such a strong turnout. It was encouraging to see a lot of interest in training and education — both scheduled courses and on-demand training that AMC Search tailors for individual organisations.”
