Following the success of the 2021 deliveries of the S-5B Hydrographic Surveyor and S-8B Nautical Cartographers courses, IIC Academy has announced that enrolments are open for the 2022 deliveries of the programs.
Both courses are recognised by the International Board on Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors and Nautical Cartographers (IBSC).
“The lack of publicly available hydrographic and cartographic training in our region has long been a limiting factor for potential students and a frustration for employers trying to find capable and qualified people to meet the growing demand for services,” said David Crossman, Managing Director Australasia for IIC Technologies.
The S-5B Hydrographic Surveyors Program will be delivered again in partnership with Deakin University. The course will commence in September 2022 and comprises 13 weeks of theoretical training and 7 weeks of practical work and assessment.
For this delivery, IIC and Deakin have teamed with O2 METOCEAN to allow the practical components to be run at the O2 facilities in Fremantle, allowing easier access for students from Western Australia.
If interest is strong enough, a further practical round will be considered, for delivery at Deakin’s Warrnambool campus in Victoria.
The S-8B Nautical Cartographers Program will be delivered as a 22-week global delivery, maximising online learning methods and also commencing in September 2022. This course will provide students with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge and skills required to undertake nautical chart production.
Those interested in taking part in the programs should email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Full details about the programs can be found at http://iicacademy.com.
