    Mick has worked with a number of Port Authorities and other organisations to provide sponsorships and ship placements for these mariners of the future.

    His passion for our industry is priceless.

    The National Marine Science Committee is conducting  research to investigate the compatibility between postgraduate training and the needs of employers in Australia’s marine/aquatic sector. The project is intended to contribute to the development of university training that better meets the emerging needs of Australia’s ‘Blue Economy’.

    My name is Tracy MacKeracher and I am the Research Officer on the project, based at James Cook University. We are conducting a short (5 – 10 min) online survey to understand the professional staff needs of employers in Australia's marine/aquatic sector. The survey can be completed by a senior representative of any non-university employer in the sector (e.g. consulting, research, fishing, non-profit sector, offshore oil & gas, marine insurance, tourism, government, boat/ship building, construction, ports & shipping). I have attached an information sheet, which provides additional details.

    Would any AMPI members be willing to complete this important anonymous online survey?

    If so, please contact me at tracy.mackeracher@my.jcu.edu.au.

    By participating in this study, you would be supporting research that contributes to the development of university training that better meets the needs of employers in Australia’s marine/aquatic sector.

    Please click here for additional information about the survey.

    I have tried to be brief as this is a preliminary e-mail to scope your interest. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the project and, upon request, the results can be made available to you once the project is completed. 

    Warm regards,

    Tracy MacKeracher

    On 30th Oct, NSW Ports and Ports Australia hosted a meeting in Port Botany with The Hon Andrew Broad MP (Assisting Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister)

    This meeting was followed by a port tour on the PANSW fire tug. AMPI President Neil Farmer joined the tour at the invitation of Ports Australia CEO Michael Gallacher. Newcastle HM Jeanine Drummond was also on board.

    This was a great opportunity for Jeanine and I to describe to the Minister, first hand, the critical role pilots play in the port logistics chain.
