We are now recruiting for an Assistant Instructor to support the Royal Australian Navy`s (RAN) Bridge Training Faculty team in providing advanced tactical and navigational training to the next generation of officers.


A calm and balanced approach is needed to get the best from this dynamic and exciting role.
