The Qingdao International Marina in Shandong Province China was the venue for an intensive three day marina training course that concluded 3 March.

The course was conducted by the Marina in partnership with the Marina Industries Association (MIA); a foundation member of the Global Marina Institute.

40 staff from Qingdao International Marina and Olympic Sailing Centre successfully completed the intensive three day training course. The course consisted of 16 units; a mix of class room and practical training including marina business, environmental management, health and safety, customer service and knot tying and slicing.

The course was led by MIA President Andrew Chapman (CMM) and Clemens Overdijk (CMM). According to Mr Chapman the course was judged by participants and Qingdao International Marina to have been a great success. 'The class was very responsive to the syllabus. The course content was developed specifically to meet the needs of the marina, while still aligning with the core competencies reflected in international best practice for marina training as delivered by MIA'.

During the past 12 months MIA has delivered 15 marina training courses across five countries: in Singapore, Korea, UAE (in association with the British Marine Federation), China and Australia. Mr Overdijk said through delivering marina training across the region the MIA has a detailed understanding of specific training needs within these countries. 'Qingdao International Marina is to be congratulated for working closely with MIA in the development of tailored training based on MIA’s established credentials as an internationally respected marina training organisation'.

Mr Chapman said as the marina industries in China expands it is important leading marinas such as Qingdao International Marina and Olympic Sailing Centre continue to set a high benchmark aligned to international best practice. 'This will ensure that other marinas follow the lead of Qingdao and that the public users of marinas experience service and standards that are of the highest level'.
