Developing Alaska's Maritime Workforce
The University of Alaska has been collaborating with maritime industry representatives, state agencies, legislators and other training entities across the state since 2012 on the Fishing, Seafood and Maritime Initiative (FSMI). The goal of the initiative is to assess, develop and deliver training programs, raise awareness and further research to prepare Alaskans to meet current and emerging workforce, economic and scientific needs. Through this effort, the Alaska Maritime Workforce Development Plan was created and published in May 2014. The University of Alaska is now working with maritime partners to implement the plan. We encourage you to read the plan.
