Serving the professional interests of pilots and pilotage throughout Australasia

Welcome to AMPI

The Australasian Marine Pilots Institute is the professional body representing marine pilots throughout Australasia. It assists in the setting of standards, safety management and provides support and guidance with ongoing professional development. 

AMPI provides advice to regulators on how to improve operational safety in our ports, and ensures that member pilots and their organisations continue to lead in world’s best practice. Together with its partners, AMPI has developed a set of training standards for both initial and continual training for pilots. As a partner of the International Marine Pilots Association, AMPI also has input into all important decisions made by the International Maritime Organisation

AMPI President, Josephine Clark, closing our Port Moresby conference. A hugely successful event, made possible by our valued sponsors, speakers and our wonderful venue. Hosting a conference overseas is no easy task, and we would like to thank our conference committee for their countless volunteered hours and dedication to bringing such a valuable event to our closest neighbours and good friends in PNG.

Conference papers will be available on our website soon. 

And now... the countdown is on for our next regional ports and pilotage conference, which we are excited to announce, which will be held at The Shangri-La in beautiful CAIRNS from 23-26 March, 2025.

See you there!

Excellent choice. Might pack a puffer jacket for the harbour tour - just in case.

Great to be back for day 2! Kicking off the day with a presentation from Richard Hayka at Pacific Towing on the relationship between towage and pilotage in PNG.
