METL Sponsored IR Revalidation Course Ultimo TAFE

Another cohort of METL sponsored IR's have completed a revalidation course in conjunction with Ultimo TAFE. 
The students completed their training in firefighting and survival craft amongst other units to be able to go back to sea and serve as Australia seafarers.

To date METL has assisted 152 seafarers as part of their Hardship Assistance Scheme.
The project has been spearheaded by METL’s Miss Allanah Gavin who has worked tirelessly to find courses and assist seafarers nationally.

It was great to get down to the college and meet with the sailors in person and hear their stories of service and their continuing dedication to the proud career of seafaring.
Working with Ultimo TAFE has also been a highlight and has allowed METL to extend its educational opportunities to sailors on the east coast.
