The Great Barrier Reef International Marine College (GBRIMC) was opened in Cairns, Australia three years ago to offer Australians and international marine students the opportunity to achieve marine qualifications and certifications for a variety of marine industry career fields.
GBRIMC is a Queensland Government owned entity that is managed by a seven-member volunteer Business Management Group appointed by the State Government.
The GBRIMC manages the buildings and facilities and invites high quality training organisations to offer both accredited and non-accredited courses at the facility in Portsmith, Cairns.
The Australian Marine Training Network acts as an advisory body to the Business Management Group.
The current members include leaders in the marine industry encompassing coastal shipping, shipbuilding and repair, marine tourism and international yachting. It also includes leaders in the education field.
The GBRIMC Cairns campus is headed by a College Director who is supported by marine experienced teaching staff and a dedicated administration team.
