THE CEOs from GCIT (Gold Coast Institute of TAFE) and Riviera Australia have recently joined forces to launch the new GCIT Marine Training Centre at the Riviera headquarters in Coomera, Australia.
Aaron Devine, CEO of GCIT and Wes Moxey, CEO of Riviera Australia together hand-sawed a plywood banner to mark the official launch of the facility, a training hub for more than 100 apprentices studying marine mechanical technology and marine craft construction as well as school-based students studying the certificate I in boating.
Aaron Devine stated, “The Institute has a long and well established history with Riviera. We are incredibly pleased to again play such a vital role in training Australia’s marine industry professionals and we are honoured to be an integral part of the Gold Coast’s recovering marine industry. A skilled and educated workforce is essential to not only the industry’s growth and development but also the regions.”
Wes Moxey, CEO of Riviera Australia commented, “Riviera was extremely proud to be the home of the new GCIT Marine Training Centre. This training centre provides a great facility for the Gold Coast marine precinct and the Australian boating industry. Each year thousands of boats are designed, manufactured, serviced, and refitted within the precinct and we feel honoured to be a part of this very unique training program, which will have an integral role in supporting the growth of the marine industry in the years ahead.”
