The Australian recipient of the inaugural Bellingham International Marina Education Scholarship Craig Evans is departing for the UK 23 February. Craig is the Executive Officer of the Cruising Yacht Club of South Australia.

The Scholarship enables Craig to travel and participate in the six day Advanced Marina Management (AMM) course being held 26 February - 2 March 2012 in Poole, UK. The course is being conducted by the British Marine Federation and is recognised by the Global Marina Institute (GMI). Craig will also visit a number of UK marinas after completing the course.

Craig will join 13 other course delegates attending from the UK, Portugal, Montenegro, China, UAE, Turkey, Netherlands and Ireland.

'I am excited and privileged to be participating in this truly global AMM course. I am sure the information, knowledge and networks I gain from the course and subsequent marina visits will benefit my work at the Cruising Yacht Club,' Craig said.

Andrew Chapman, President of the Marina Industries Association of Australia (MIAA) said 'The Australian marina industry is extremely appreciative of Bellingham Marine Australia for significantly assisting the professional development of the Australian industry.

'The MIAA was very pleased that the UK winner of the Scholarship who attended our September 2011 AMM added significant value to the course outcomes. We look forward to hearing of Craig’s reflections on the course and visits to a number of UK marinas.'

Bellingham Marine Australian Manager John Spragg said Bellingham recognise the importance of a professional and well trained industry. 'Bellingham has a long history of supporting the marina industry across the world,' he said. 'Bellingham invest in this and other industry initiatives to assist the sustainable development of the industry.'

The Global Marina Institute Ltd (GMI) was formed in 2011 as a partnership between British Marine Federation and Marina Industries Association of Australia. It delivers global marina training and certification with the aim of maintaining and increasing standards in marinas across the world. The two organisations work together to maintain existing certifications and to develop new certification pathways and training courses to meet the needs of both existing marinas and marinas developing around the World.
