AWO Mariner Workforce Forum: Building Workforce Pipelines with Maritime Academies

September 21, 2023
2-3 PM (Eastern)


Join us for AWO's third Mariner Workforce Forum to learn about ways you can build workforce pipelines with state maritime academies. In this Forum, you'll hear from the team at Maine Maritime Academy. MMA's tug and barge program is respected by AWO members across the country, and its range of credential-track programs and professional development courses offer a variety of ways for operators to engage with MMA to build strong career pathways for MMA's students to thrive in tugboat, towboat, and barge industry careers.

AWO's Mariner Workforce Forums bring together member and industry experts to share practical knowledge on mariner recruitment, retention, and advancement. Forums include Q&A with the presenters, opportunities for members to share their challenges/successes and ask questions to other members, and provide input on topics for future Forums.
