This designation focuses on ten competency areas. The CMAA-AMI alliance allows CMAA members working toward the CCM designation the opportunity to take AMI training courses. AMI courses can also be used to maintain the CCM designation. More information on the CCM designation can be found at www.cmaa.org/certification.

AMI has been training marina managers since 1986 through multiple programs, including its Intermediate and Advanced Marina Managers school. Upon successful completion of these schools and after documenting their operational experience, participants can apply for the Certification of Marina Manager (CMM) or Certified Marina Operator (CMO) designation. A full list of course offerings can certification opportunities can be found at www.marinaassociation.org/training.
