Careers at Sea Information Session

An information session about the exciting careers available in the maritime industry was held at our Port Adeaide campus at 6pm on Tuesday 17 Feb, 2015.

The session included information about the various courses offered by the Australian Maritime and Fisheries Academy (AMFA) for domestic jobs in the near coastal maritme industry as well as the proposed delivery of the Bachelor of Applied Science (Nautical Science) by the Australian Maritime College (AMC).

Those who attended heard from AMFA's Chief Excecutive Officer, an AMFA Master Class 1 and an AMFA Engineer Class 1 and there were plenty of questions asked by those in attendance.
