Marina 101 is a 4-hour marina industry introduction course geared towards those individuals, with little or no marina experience, looking to get into the industry by way of an advancement opportunity, career shift, or an interest in purchasing or developing a marina.

The Marina 101 course is made up of 9 individual presentations, created and presented by Carl F. Wolf, CMM CMI and former President of the International Marina Institute. The presentations will give you an insight preview of the various aspects in the operations of a marina.
