Nelson Marlborough institute of technology
As a training institute we are often the first port of call for aspiring sailors so believe we have the unique honour of encouraging diversity from the ground up. Developing an ethos in our graduates of empowerment for anyone in any role regardless of gender will follow them throughout their career and ensure the next generation of seafarers are as diverse as the ships we sail on.
Who are they?
The International Maritime Institute of New Zealand (IMINZ) is a leading provider of training for the super yacht, fishing, maritime transport and maritime tourism industries.
At NMIT we invest in modern training equipment, including a Konsberg full mission bridge navigation and linked engineering simulator, lifeboat, fast rescue boat, tender, three story fire facility and working bar and restaurant for interior training.
Our values include 'Rangatiratanga' which means to treat people with fairness and equity.
Assigned Senior Sponsor
Peter joined NMIT after coming ashore in 2017. He also delivers the on-water training for the courses Powerboat, Tender Operator, Advanced Powerboat, STCW and MRROC.
He started out his professional experience doing a Certificate in Commercial Fishing Operations in 1997 – no one in NZ knew about the Superyacht world at that time! “I wish there had been this course 20 years ago!”
