Coxswain Training

Coxswain Training

In 2019, we hosted the highly anticipated Coxswain training on both islands, first on Melville Island in July-August then onto Bathurst Island in August-September. All relevant stakeholders were involved including Tiwi Islands Regional Council, the Land Council and Tiwi Enterprises. Coastal Tug & Barge (CTB) supplied crew members and technical management to ensure each student gained the maximum value from the experience.

Much of the course was conducted in the port, including one day spent on board two tug boats learning about vessel structures and fire safety systems. The inter-island barge was used as part of the training as well as the swimming pool, much to the delight of the participants.

Coxswain training aims to give Tiwis the opportunity to gain employment in the marine industry. Two candidates have already found employment as a result and we hope further opportunities will arise in the near future.
