Maritime and Corrections industry subject matter experts needed! 

The Maritime IRC is seeking to form Technical Advisory Committee for three projects to review and develop materials for the MAR Maritime training package.

The three projects require industry expertise to inform the development of:

  • dynamic positioning system operators skill set and new UoCs;
  • a new compass adjuster skill set and UoC aligned to AMSA regulatory and certification requirements; and
  • new maritime towing skill sets and UoCs.

The Corrections IRC is looking for industry experts to form a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to help update four units of competency, and develop a new offender engagement skill set to equip correctional services officers with the skills to enhance engagement and support with offenders. 

Correctional staff require well-developed communication skills to engage with offenders to identify their individual needs, vocational interests and strengths and encourage participation in appropriate programs and services.

This is aimed at improving reintegration in the community, reducing recidivism and increasing future employment opportunities.
