TAFE Queensland's range of maritime courses will set you up for a career on the high seas. We offer a range of courses in marine craft construction, maritime operations, and marine mechanical technology as well as skill sets in marine radio operation, shipboard safety, and emergency care.

As the worlds largest island nation, Australia relies on a strong maritime industry. The number of job vacancies in the industry is expected to increase over the next five years with employers searching for qualified candidates to fill jobs across a wide range of maritime positions.

Whether you want to get your coxswain certificate, build and repair boats, or work as a marine mechanic, the maritime industry opens up a range of career options. Other possible job opportunities include chief engineer, deckhand, engineer watchkeeper, marina hand, marine cook, marine engine driver, and ship's mate or master.
