It is hoped that the course, which aims to teach key concepts, projects and language, will help the program’s participants find employment within Australia’s shipbuilding sector.

Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price noted that the training was an important tool for Australians to find careers in the industry.

“The booming naval shipbuilding industry offers a wealth of long-term career opportunities for Australians,” Minister Price said.

“By 2030 Australia’s National Naval Shipbuilding Enterprise will employ about 15,000 people across the nation, from trades to PhDs.

“We are ensuring that we have a workforce that can capitalise on the opportunities presented by the Morrison government’s unprecedented $270 billion investment in Defence capability.”

“The focus is on preparing students for the shipbuilding jobs of the future and ensuring they have the appropriate skills and experience as the enterprise expands.”

The course will begin in April with subsequent courses expected beginning May and June.
