Thinking of a career as a marine surveyor?
In Australia and the Australasian region, private commercial marine surveyors work across the entire spectrum of shipping.
Their work encompasses all categories of surveys from cargo, insurance, salvage and towing to recreational vessel insurance and pre-purchase surveys to domestic working vessels needing a survey under the National Law requirements.
Due to the complexities of shipping and the maritime industry those people who already have a shipping or maritime background make the best marine surveyors and are generally more successful than those coming from outside the industry.
The AIMS promotes marine surveyors across all sectors of the industry, and provides the training required to become a professional surveyor.
