Seafaring Skills Census
Seafaring skills are not just critical for working on ships but are also fundamental to shore-based activities and to the broader economy.
The functioning and success of Australia’s ports, major offshore energy projects and critical shore-side infrastructure all depend on the availability of qualified and experienced Seafarers.
Seafarers also facilitate domestic and international trade which directly impacts on consumers and businesses around Australia and the world. Without these skills, Australia’s maritime industry suffers, and parts of the economy become seriously compromised.
