Creating Tomorrow's Ocean Workforce

The process of developing a competent ocean workforce that is well prepared for employment requires collaborating with a wide range of people and organizations.  One of the major tasks of the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) Center is to identify and define marine technical occupations and the abilities that men and women need in order to perform well in these occupations.  The major product that results from this work is a set of occupational Knowledge and Skill guidelines (KSGs) for technical marine occupations.  These guidelines describe what workers need to know and be able to do in order to perform their jobs well and they are different for each occupation.
