Coastal Seafaring

Coastal Seafarers are hands-on and dynamic. From running catamaran tourist trips and fishing charters to working on rig tenders and off-shore vessels, seafarers are highly mobile. Our flexible courses are industry relevant and provide you with a qualification that could take you around the world.

We offer a range of VET programs tailored to match industry needs as well as a specialised approach to learning by integrating theory around practical experience. Our training courses are conducted from both our Newnham and Beauty Point campuses, which utilises our suite of maritime training facilities and fleet of training vessels.  However, the modes, structure and locations of delivery can be flexible by formal agreement with commercial or government entities.*   

We host a suite of world class training facilities including training vessels, engineering workshops, navigation and engine room simulations, fire-fighting, and survival at sea facilities and seamanship workshops. Our teaching staff have been recruited for their specialist seafaring skills and dedicated approach to training and student experience.

Courses available

Please Note: The enrolment pathways and content of these programs will vary to meet the requirements of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) Deck and Engineering Officer Licenses that AMC is approved to deliver.

* The modes, structure and locations of delivery can be flexible by formal arrangement, especially to meet the particular total workforce needs of organisations. It may be possible to run courses in other locations provided there are adequate client numbers and appropriate facilities available, and provide delivery in blocks and/or via blended learning.
