Course Information Booklet
All you need to know about this course can be found in our Coxswain Course Information Booklet.
If you have a passion for driving boats, why not get paid for it. The marine industry needs competent crew to transport guests and cargo and to provide services, labour and contracts on the waterfront and on the coast. A Coxswain is a commercial skipper and engineer of vessels up to 12 metres. Take control of a ferry, water taxi, jet boat, yacht, catamaran, tourism or catering vessels and a variety of work boats.
Would you rather be fishing?
With Australia's long coastline, Australian fishing vessels operate in the world's third largest market and some of the most pristine marine environments in the world. As a coxswain you will oversee, navigate and manage the operation of a fishing vessel; or operate your own charter fishing boat. You would consult the weather, make a voyage plan and give instructions to the ship's crew.
