Boating OntarioIntermediate Marina Management Course (IMM) Heading to Barrie, Ontario, December 2019

The Association of Marina Industries (AMI) has partnered with Boating Ontario to bring our most popular training course, the Intermediate Marina Management Course (IMM), to Barrie Ontario, December 1-5, 2019.

“I have been working closely with Boating Ontario to bring this course to their doorstep,” said AMI’s Training Coordinator, Merritt Alves. “Boating Ontario has a healthy marina membership with marina managers who are looking for additional training opportunities and have shown a growing interest in our Certified Marina Manager (CMM) and Certified Marina Operator (CMO)certifications.”

“Offering this exceptional training right here in Ontario not only saves our members travel costs, it also broadens the education opportunity for more members to participate,” said Boating Ontario CEO Rick Layzell. “The MarineWorx Development Fund provides a $100 discount towards AMI membership costs for any Boating Ontario member. In addition, MarineWorx will offer a $500 credit for (up to) 10 member employees who complete the December 2019 training.”

The IMM course is ideal for both full charge marina managers and operation managers looking to further their careers and increase their network within the marina industry. In order to attend the course, the applicant must have one year of marina management experience. The IMM course is the first step toward the highly recognized Certified Marina Manager (CMM) or Certified Marina Operator (CMO) designations. Upon completion of the IMM course, students must then attend the Advanced Marina Management (AMM) course before applying for certification.

By attending the IMM course, students will be exposed to new ways of dealing with issues and challenges common throughout the marina industry. The 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 how to best market your marina to stay competitive in today’s climate.

Course fees include hotel stay, breakfast and lunch each day, an opening reception and a closing dinner, along with all course materials. The fee is $2,995 (U.S.) for AMI members and $3,470 (U.S.) for non-members. To register for the course visit https://marinaassociation.org/immcourseschedule and click on the December application.

AMI has been training and certifying marina professionals for over 30 years. There are currently 406 Certified Marina Managers (CMMs) and 43 Certified Marina Operators (CMOs) throughout the world.

AMI is a nonprofit membership organization providing management training, education, and information about research, legislation and environmental issues affecting the marina industry. To join AMI, visit www.marinaassociation.org and click on “become a member”.
