Inchcape recently attended the Australian Maritime College ( AMC ) Career Expo in Launceston, TAS, providing a presentation to students of the Inchcape group, and providing insight into future potential careers within the Inchcape group, both locally or globally. The Australian Maritime College at the University of Tasmania is the national institute for maritime education, training and research.

The qualifications that AMC offers, spanning the disciplines of coastal and ocean seafaring, maritime engineering and global logistics management, correlate closely with global demand and lead to excellent outcomes for our graduates."
