The BIAA takes very seriously the matter of industry professional development and equally that of education and training of the boater to be a safe, competent and confident boater. A number of programs exist across the country to provide support in these areas, and BIAA will be working to deliver these on a consistent national basis.

An important element of BIAA’s support for the boating industry is the development and provision of a career pathway for the industry. The boating industry is a diverse sector, offering a very wide range of

skilled occupations and career opportunities and BIAA will be promoting the opportunities that exist within the industry to secondary and tertiary education providers in order to nurture the next generation of industry professionals.

BIAA supports the work of state government maritime agencies to promote boater education and training and works with ANZSBEG to deliver safety messages to the boater. See ANZSBEG for more information.
