With Maritime and Safety Training, getting your Coxswain licence has never been easier. Our training courses give you the opportunity to command and operate a vessel safely up to 12 metres in length in Australian inshore waters, operate inboard and outboard motors and comply with all health and safety regulations.
Other course units of competency include fire-fighting procedures, basic survival skills in case of vessel abandonment, and basic servicing and maintenance of main propulsion unit and auxiliary systems. Propulsion power will vary depending on which Coxswain Licence you achieve.

Getting Your Coxswain Licence

This allows you to get real-world experience in an environment that permits holders of Coxswain Licences to operate under certain conditions that may be imposed depending on the situation.
Once you have completed your chosen course you will be issued either with a Certificate I in Maritime Operations (Coxswain Grade 2 Near Coastal) MAR10413, or a Certificate II in Maritime Operations (Coxswain Grade 1 Near Coastal) MAR20313.
