TAFE NSW Newcastle upskills Australian Border Force

With Australia relying on sea transport for 99% of exports and Newcastle being the world's largest coal export port, it makes sense that TAFE NSW Newcastle offers a wide range of maritime courses.

In fact, students travel from as far as the Ukraine to study here.

Many don’t realise TAFE NSW Newcastle is the only East Coast provider of the world’s highest seafarer qualification. The training students receive locally is recognised internationally as best-in-class.

Australian Border Force is well aware of the quality of education. A handful of its locally-based marine unit officers have just begun studying here, across Maritime Studies and Marine Engineering.
