Marine Ireland Industry Network (MIIN) is to host the 'Blue Skills and Training in the Marine & Maritime Industry' which will be an Online (Zoom) event held on Tuesday, 30 August (12:00-1300hrs)

The MIIN Virtual Event is to create opportunities for growth and has been organised as a follow up to research commissioned by the Marine Institute and delivered by Flagship Management around marine internships and work placements.

The main findings of this report will be presented, followed by insights from Green Skillsnet on the opportunities and training needs in the Offshore Wind industry, as well as a unique look into the new marine traineeships set-up in the Donegal region.

Training providers from the MIIN Directory will also showcase their available courses.
