Since its establishment in 2013, the Taiwan Marine Education Center has been given the task of enhancing the public awareness of ocean and the public literacy of ocean. Aimed at training of marine professionals and the future direction, we have held marine international conferences and marine professional training forums for five consecutive years since 2014. Experts, scholars and practitioners in government, industry, education and research related to marine at home and abroad have been invited to communicate and discuss to provide references for future reform of high-quality talents training. These conferences and forums have gradually become important annual events of domestic marine education. The important achievements of annual marine professional training forums are as follows:
