The GCCM Marine Trades Academy is the brainchild of GCCM management and local employment and training specialists, DGT Employment and Training.
The marine sector has grown at an unprecedented rate with the industry now in dire need of a pipeline of skilled marine trades workers to fill labour shortages.
The GCCM Marine Trades Academy provides a well-located skills, training and employment support system with almost guaranteed job-placement into one of the 90+ marine businesses that operate within GCCM or further afield for marine trades businesses in other parts of Queensland or Australia.
The marine industry is fast-paced and ever-evolving so for those seeking out new career paths, the Academy is an ideal way to get the right advice and appropriate training to then leapfrog into a job within the industry with plenty of opportunities for growth and development.
