These include specialist RAN courses encompassing hull, propulsion and diesel maintenance, electrical systems, maritime operations and control systems. SM TAFE has successfully implemented job specific programs to ensure RAN personnel have the requisite skills and knowledge to meet the demands of their unique work environment. These programs offer the opportunities to gain professional, trade and tertiary qualifications. Training is customised and delivered to specialised defence requirements.
