Why Would You Go Anywhere Else?
GBRIMC has everything you need in one place to start or develop your career in the maritime industry.

The Great Barrier Reef International Marine College (GBRIMC) is Australia’s newest maritime training facility, right on the doorstep to the Great Barrier Reef and its warm tropical waters in Cairns, Australia.
The college is one of the best equipped training centres in the southern hemisphere, comprising of a Full Mission Bridge Simulator and Navigation Labs, Emergency Response Simulator and a sea survival training immersion pool, as well as two training vessels to provide practical hands on training.
The college caters to local, national and international students looking to start or enhance their career in the marine industry. Programs are available that lead to the internationally recognised certificates required to serve on and operate all types of vessel from up to 12m in length to the largest ships afloat at over 400m in length, whether it is around our coast or to anywhere in the world.
For those still at school, GBRIMC’s school-based MarineTech program enables secondary students to receive relevant marine training while still completing their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
The college facilities are also available to industry operators for higher level qualifications and for research and development.
