Re: (30)Senior Marine Safety Inspector

many of the inspectors are close to retirement and some have already retired. Victoria has a new TC inspector, but he is not new to TC. If you have a 1st or 2nd class, this is the time to apply and take up those position, if selected. Even a 3rd class can apply as TC inspectors. Closing date is today.
