Adam Brancher, IIMS Australia Branch Chair and VP IIMS, writes:
“We have had lots of feedback on preferred events and formats. We’ve decided to push back from February to a time when many are less busy.
In general it’s clear that people want to get their hands dirty and learn or revise critical skills. To this end we have decided to hold an IIMS Australia branch technical workshop and Branch AGM at the Australian Fisheries and Maritime Academy in Port Adelaide, South Australia on 18/19 June 2015. We are looking at a 10.00 am start on the Thursday and an early afternoon finish on the Friday with an informal dinner on Thursday night locally – to allow easy travel to and from, or indeed for people to take advantage of a long weekend in the Barossa, Clare Valley or any of the other fantastic areas close to Adelaide.
Themes we are looking to cover in the Technical Workshop include:
New regulations and opportunities for survey businesses.
Practical NDT Heritage vessel survey (on board local vessels).
Practical stability risk assessment.
ISM/Safety Management systems.
Other suggestions are most welcome and there are cost effective sponsorship options available.
It will not be expensive for members to attend and will provide an excellent chance to learn, network and socialise.”
Full details to follow, including session details.
