Quadrant Marine Excellence

June 25, 2021

It’s the people of our industry that make it excellent. 15 owners and managers piloted our new training program and are now each a certified “Marine Service Manager of Excellence”. Watch their videos here to see how the training is helping them raise the bar in professionalism, project management, communication, safety, and more.

The Marine Service Manager of Excellence course was created to support skilled technicians progressing into management roles. Designed and facilitated by subject matter experts from within the marine industry, the course provides in-depth knowledge and professional contacts to support the ongoing professional development.

Highlights of the Marine Service Manager of Excellence training include

– Plain-language instruction and hands-on, relevant activities

– Industry-specific content, so you don’t have to translate from theory or another industry

– Mentoring (from industry experts and peer teams), to help you use what you’ve learned

The next training course is Fall 2021 – keep an eye on our website and social media for updates, and don’t forget to watch the videos featuring our first cohort of certified Marine Service Managers of Excellence!
