about smt

Tasmania is surrounded by some of the world’s cleanest waters, providing an abundance of opportunities in seafood, shellfish, aquaculture and ocean tourism. And as Australia’s southernmost port, Hobart acts as a gateway to Antarctica for maritime and research services. 

It is because of our close working relationship with this large variety of seafood and maritime industries that SMT has become Australia’s preferred industry training provider.

We pride ourselves on offering organisations and individual students, exceptional guidance throughout their complete training experience. This includes all of the documentation and follow-up necessary to ensure that qualifications remain current and in-keeping with changing legal requirements.

the latest from us

Have a yarn with Ellen Duke and Ben Cameron.

At 5 years old, Ben Cameron wasn’t too young to help on the family’s oyster farm at Dunalley. He was soon joined by his younger sister, Ellen. They were paid in icy poles to fold cardboard boxes and got $5 a day to help anti-foul the bottom of boats.

Before she was 10 years old Ellen knew her future career. “I clearly remember going ‘yep, this is what I want to do, and I want to be like my dad’. And nothing he could do from that point on could change my mind”.
