The Australian Federal Government is investing $90 billion in naval vessels and shipyard infrastructure and $60 million to educate and train the workforce to build Australia’s future naval fleet.

Those $$$ will give us one of the most efficient and technologically advanced fleets in the world. Once it’s launched it will need to be serviced, maintained and updated with the latest technologies.

Not only will the fleet keep us safe; it will also provide heaps of career opportunities for years to come. That’s a big positive for our future!
