Shortage of Marine Surveyors 2010


Shortage of Marine Surveyors

A recent article in the 'Australian' newspaper discussed the chronic shortage of Marine Surveyors needed for Australian ports.

The skill shortage adds to already short supply of Deck Officer qualifications due mainly to the lack of an industry plan and support from government and port service providers.

What is needed is urgent action to be coordinated by the Federal Government to finalise and implement an industry wide plan that addresses the training and its costs.

This matter can no longer be avoided.
