Great Barrier Reef International Marine College

World-class Maritime training on the doorstep of the Great Barrier Reef.

The Great Barrier Reef International Marine College (GBRIMC) is an innovative leader in the provision of maritime training to local, national and international clients. Situated in Cairns, our state-of-the-art training facility offers a comprehensive range of training qualifications and certificates, in accordance with regulatory requirements and AMSA. In partnership with TAFE Queensland, the GBRIMC is at the forefront to deliver quality maritime education and training for seafarers across the globe.

Training can be tailored to suit individual or group requirements and delivered on-site at our custom-built facilities or remotely at any location. GBRIMC provides certification in accordance with national and international regulatory requirements.

Facilities: Full mission bridge simulator (Kongsberg Polaris), STCW and DNV compliant. The bridge is equipped with Electronic Chart Display, AIS, radar and the controls required to operate a range of propulsion and steering systems.

Desktop Simulators: The eight desktop simulator stations are operated from a separate instructor station utilising the same Kongsberg system. Each station has single channel visuals, ECDIS, Radar, AIS and electronic replication of the standard controls and instrumentation found on a ship’s bridge.

Multi-purpose Emergency Response Training Simulator: This “ship ashore” facility provides a variety of simulated experiences including fire-fighting, damage control and emergency response training.

On-site Immersion pool: Used for sea survival training, measures 15m by 10m and is 4m deep.

Training: In addition to certificate qualifications, the GBRIMC offers an extensive range of short courses that lead to internationally recognised certificates issued by the AMSA. Our training complies with the requirements of the International Maritime Organisation Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (IMO STCW).
