About the Webinar 

Marine Pilots in Australia are recruited from a variety of different seagoing backgrounds. We talk to Marine Pilots from Ports in Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales to find out about their pathway into Marine Pilotage, how they transitioned and the challenges that they have faced. 

This webinar will offer a great opportunity for anyone interested in going to sea to find out more about these different pathways.
