Diploma of Marine Studies

National ID: 52697WA | State ID: 3731

 

This course provides the learner with skills and knowledge to gain employment in the maritime industry or for further studies in marine sciences in the University sector. You will learn about seamanship, small vessel operations and maintenance, coastal navigation and meteorology, marine biological and ecological systems, fishing and aquaculture technology and management strategies. This course has a significant component of practical training on board our fleet of vessels, in designated fishing & engineering workshops and in laboratories.

This qualification is completed as a dual qualification with MAR20313 Certificate II in Maritime Operations (Coxswain Grade 1 Near Coastal), which enhances the employability skills of the graduates and provides them with the opportunity to apply for a nationally recognised commercial ticket (Coxswain Grade 1 Near Coastal (NC)) once they have completed the additional Australian Maritime Safety Authority requirements. Please ensure that you enrol in both at time of enrolment.

The Certificate II in Maritime Operations (Coxswain Grade 1 Near Coastal) is not eligible for Vet Fee Help, and must either be paid in full or by the Payment Plan whereby a $100 deposit is paid upfront and the balance is split over 8 x fortnightly payments.
