Queensland Branch MUA

Queensland maritime coastline is just shy of 7,000 kilometres with an area of coverage extending from Weipa on the western side of Cape York to the border with New South Wales at the holiday destination of the Tweed. The coastline is diverse in its geographical landscape and so is the MUA coverage in this State. Towage extends from Weipa in the North as well as regular sailings on the MUA manned vessels from the Port to Gladstone. Ever developing industry in the State needs to be balanced against unique eco-systems including the Great Barrier Reef. The importance of well trained seafarers is paramount in sustaining the balance. The major trading container Port is Brisbane with three Terminal operations with major commodity exports in the Central area of Gladstone, Mackay, Townsville and the surrounding bulk Ports in the North.

Immediate Need

A surge of seafarers requiring recertification training is predicted for June and for December of 2021.

These two peaks coincide with the conclusion of the expiry date extension window provided by AMSA during COVID, and with the first cohort of seafarers who switched from the in-perpetuity STCW booklets to the 5 year expiry CoST cards back in 2016 now being due to renew them.
