The Maritime industry is an intrinsic part of the Australian economy in the transportation of goods – imports and exports, as well as tourism and other value-added activities. A focus on digital skills, data analytics and cybersecurity, in addition to the more traditional roles of seafarers are areas of focus for the current and future workforce.
Maritime IRC Chair Steven Moon:
As an island nation we are tied to the sea. The Maritime industry is continually evolving and the demand for skills, both new and traditional, is ever increasing as new systems and technologies gain traction both onshore and at sea. A career in this sector can be stimulating, challenging and exciting and offers a great sense of pride and achievement for those with a passion for the sea.
