IMI LogoThe International Marina Institute (IMI), a subsidiary of the Association of Marina Industries (AMI), is offering its popular Intermediate Marina Management (IMM) program from February 18 – 22, 2018, in Austin, Texas, in partnership with the Marina Association of Texas (MAT).

IMI offers the IMM course as a stepping-stone to its Advanced Marina Management (AMM) school. Candidates must successfully complete the IMM course in order to enroll in the AMM school, which in turn qualifies them to apply for the highly-recognized Certified Marina Manager/CMM and Certified Marina Operator/CMO designations.

 

 

As preparation for advanced studies in marina management, the IMM course covers marina-specific topics including marina law, contracts, risks and liabilities, staff management, fire- and emergency-response planning, environmental management, health and safety compliance, and the timely issue of how best to market your marina to stay competitive in a difficult economy.

“Our affiliate partnerships have helped to spread the word about our certification and training programs. We are excited to bring our latest marina management training to Austin. We hope to be able to train many marina professionals in Texas and surrounding areas by bringing the training to their doorstep,” says Merritt Alves, IMI training coordinator. MAT is excited to have the IMM course held in Texas in February. “We have several MAT members pursuing their CMM designation with AMI, so this is a great opportunity for them to have training close to home as well as bring marina operators from across the U.S. to experience our beautiful state”, says Kim Shrum, MAT Executive Director.

Class fees—including lunches and all course materials—are $2,995 for AMI members or $3,470 for non-members.

IMI has been training and certifying marina personnel for over 30 years and offers courses in Intermediate Marina Management and Advanced Marina Management. Over 350 marina managers, representing many of the top marinas in the world, have been awarded the coveted CMM or CMO designations.

AMI is a nonprofit membership organization that provides management training, education and information about research, legislation and environmental issues affecting the marina industry.
