Naval Shipbuilding College

The KBR and Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) joint venture - Naval Shipbuilding Institute, will establish and manage Australia’s Naval Shipbuilding College.  The College - headquartered in South Australia – will work with shipbuilders to understand their workforce requirements throughout the different stages of project construction and sustainment, while leveraging a national network of education and training providers to deliver the specific skills required. 

The Naval Shipbuilding Institute has put together a team from the shipbuilding, education, training, academic and business sectors across Australia to ensure the mission of the Naval Shipbuilding College is properly executed. These organisations include the Australian Maritime College; Australian vocational education and training providers in Adelaide and Fremantle; and AiGroup, Manpower Group, PwC, Defence Teaming Centre and the Defence Industry Educational Skills Consortium, all of which have extensive national presence across Australia.

The initial focus of the College is to increase the number of people with key entry-level trade qualifications.
