NATFISH - NATIONAL FISHING INDUSTRY EDUCATION CENTRE
The National Fishing Industry Education Centre of TAFE is an innovative multi-purpose training facility. The Centre was established in late 1993 following a far sighted alliance between TAFE NSW and the Australian fishing industry. The Australian fishing industry has recognised the need for more systematic training for its workforce and the NFIEC is part of the industry's vision for improving its personnel's skills. The fishing industry is taken to include anyone involved in the catching, growing, processing and marketing of aquatic plants and animals.
TAFE NSW, long the State's pre-eminent vocational education and training provider, is the client's assurance of quality training. The National Fishing Industry Education Centre is part of the expanding and energetic North Coast Institute of TAFE. It is committed to providing relevant, credible and accessible vocational education and training by face to face and flexible delivery, focusing of learners' needs. The Centre's courses are conducted by highly qualified teachers with extensive experience in commercial aquaculture and other aspects of the fishing industry.
The Centre, located 10km from Grafton on the North Coast of NSW, contains facilities including wet and dry laboratories, workshop, training rooms, conference/seminar rooms and equipment, reference materials, catering facilities and access to a wide range of other training facilities in TAFE NSW and other TAFE delivery centres across Australia.
