Shipping Database

Shipping Database is an online record of ships we have photographed and seen over the years. It has then progressed to nearly 200,000 basic records of ships and counting. Information on the database comes from a variety of different sources, ranging from builders, ship owners and classification societies to magazines and publications. Each vessel is researched from at least two sources before being added into the database.

Maritime Risk Management

Queensland Marine Training Services was formed in March 2003 in response to an increasing number of requests to conduct specific maritime related training. In January 2006 we began to focus on the delivery of commercial courses including Elements of Shipboard Safety, Coxswain, Master 5, Master 4 and Marine Engine Driver Grade 3 and have built a number of partnerships with the maritime industry to facilitate training activities.
