Meet Education at Sea and the people and partners behind it

Our Company

Education at Sea is an Australian business founded by experienced nurses who wanted to offer a better alternative for CPD education for their fellow nurses.

Our programs are all designed to meet the education needs of professionals, specialising in face-to-face contact hours to build continual professional development. Our unique programs allow you to combine real education, relaxation, and all the fun of cruising. We like to say that it’s serious fun.

Our Team:


Jason is a Registered Nurse from the Gold Coast Queensland. Whilst studying his bachelor of Nursing at Southern Cross University he developed an interest in mental health and has been working in this field of nursing since completing his studies. In this time Jason has undertaken varied roles including Acute Inpatient Nursing, Community Nursing, clinical facilitating and Nurse Unit Manager positions. In 2012 Jason combined his passion for nursing with his love of travel and co-founded CPD Cruises Pty Ltd known as Education at Sea with the view to providing Nurses the opportunity to update and improve their skills in diverse and unique locations.
