Australia’s TAFE Gippsland acquires training vessel
Australian pre-vocational training organisation TAFE Gippsland recently acquired a new vessel.
Completed in 2015, the catamaran is named Bar-ba-ka after the Boon Wurrung word for “porpoise.”
The vessel will be berthed at TAFE Gippsland’s SEAMEC campus in Victoria.
Bar-ba-ka was formerly operated by the Victoria Environment Protection Authority. It was acquired with the aid of funding provided by Regional and Specialist Training Fund (RSTF) of the Victoria state government.
