STT provides input to the Seafood Industry and Maritime training packages. Further to this, where a need is identified, STT develops and attains accreditation for a short course and then seeks to have this included in the training package.

As a result of relationships with local schools and Trade Training Centre, STT is able to offer Certificates I and II in Aquaculture to school students.
