Maritime Logistics Community News : April 2014
40 MARITIME LOGISTICS COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER 2014 Studying at the Australian Maritime College is enabling Lieutenant Kelly Haywood to progress her career with the Royal Australian Navy. The Materiel Support manager within the ANZAC Systems Program Office says she chose to pursue her education at AMC because it offered courses relevant to her chosen career. "AMC has an excellent worldwide reputation as a first-class learning institution. The subjects we cover enable me to apply knowledge and skills in my day to day work and it helps me to understand how that correlates within the civilian maritime industry," she said. Lieutenant Haywood is studying a Bachelor of Business in Maritime and Logistics Management. Depending on her RAN commitments, she studies between one and two subjects each semester. "The ability to adjust the study workload is most beneficial. The flexibility of the distance education scheme enables me to work full-time as a military member, including overseas deployments, whilst studying at the same time." But studying by distance doesn't mean Lieutenant Haywood misses out on support. "The lecturers and administrative staff are extremely helpful. Not only do I get to learn and increase my knowledge on a wide range of maritime logistics topics, but I also get to liaise with other students within Australia and overseas to share ideas and hear about their experiences." Lieutenant Haywood is based at Rockingham, Perth with the Defence Materiel Organisation. The supply officer expects to complete her degree next year and, when her RAN career eventually comes to an end, intends to continue working in the maritime industry as a logistician, either in Australia or overseas. With a degree pending from AMC and growing industry experience, Kelly is well on track to achieve her career goals. Captain Jonathan Sadleir knows continual learning is essential to keep ahead in a competitive business environment. To confirm this, you need only scan his biography. He holds qualifications from the University of Waterloo and the Naval Officer College, both in Canada, and additional qualifications in Principle Warfare Officer Surface Warfare; Advanced Navigation and Naval Pilot -- nuclear endorsed. He has also completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in history, a Graduate Certificate in International Maritime Studies, graduate diplomas in both management and maritime management and logistics, and a Master of Business Administration from the Australian Maritime College. Add a plethora of senior postings with the Royal Canadian and Royal Australian Navies and Captain Sadleir's credentials are certainly impressive. Captain Sadleir chose to pursue his Graduate Certificate in Maritime Management and MBA at the Australian Maritime College because of the ability to study via distance. "During the period of study I was deployed to the Middle East twice and maintained the full range of operational and command postings. It would not have been possible for me to achieve the outcome in any other way," he said. Captain Sadleir undertook his Master of Business Administration (Maritime Logistics and Management) between 2007-2010. During this time he also commanded the ANZAC frigate HMAS Parramatta (2008) and was appointed Director Navy Continuous Improvement -- his current position. He is primarily charged with implementing Navy's contribution to the Strategic Reform Program. "Pursuing tertiary qualifications at AMC assisted in framing a way of thinking which challenges current paradigms about the way we do business and deliver outcomes." Head of AMC's Maritime and Logistics Management section Dr Stephen Cahoon says AMC is focussed on providing flexible course delivery for professionals like Captain Sadleir, and also provide students with the option to earn while they learn. "We know people lead busy lives and careers can't always be put on hold for professionals to further their education. At AMC we offer flexible learning and there are courses available which can be studied part-time or full-time, on-campus or off-campus." AMC is Australia's national institute for maritime research, education and training. With a global reputation as a centre for excellence, it offers business degrees with a competitive edge. "There are several Maritime and Logistics Management courses available; all delivered by professionally experienced lecturers with world-wide industry links. We also recognise industry experience, so students can gain entry without the usual academic requirements," Dr Cahoon said.

RAN Captain recommends study at AMC Business degree with a competitive edge Flexible, distance degree provides Lieutenant opportunity to earn and learn "I would recommend AMC to anybody who is faced with the challenge of wanting to pursue higher education but may not be able to undertake full-time studies on campus."
