Developing TIRs and PIRs

METL provides proven pathways for skill development in maritime trainees, and in doing so, helps to advance the maritime industry as a whole.

For both employers and trainees we simplify and streamline the traineeship for you. METL does everything starting at recruitment, during employment, and right through to completion. We manage all administrative processes and relationships with the RTO's, medical providers, regulators and apprenticeship centres, to ensure successful vocational outcomes.

Since METL’s first trainees were employed in February 2011, we’ve:

  • Employed and trained over 200 Trainee Integrated Ratings (TIRs)
  • Achieved a strong retention rate with more than 91% of trainees remaining with us or being successfully placed with other employers to continue their qualification
  • Attained broad representation with trainees selected from every Australian state and territory, and higher than industry average representation of female and indigenous trainees

  • Each year we manage trainees who are either at TAFE or college, or at sea as a TIR or PIR. We look forward to continuing to contribute to the professional advancement of the maritime industry in Australia in the years ahead.
