A new professional development program has been launched by the Global Marina Institute (GMI), a partnership between the British Marine Federation and Marina Industries Association of Australia.

The new Certified Marina Professional (CMP) program will sit alongside the well established Certified Marina Manager (CMM) program continuing the GMI’s delivery of global marina training and certification with the aim of maintaining and increasing standards in marinas across the world.

The CMP is designed to recognise long standing and proven professionals within the marina industries that have not been directly managing a marina. The certification will give a long overdue opportunity for the wider sector professionals to gain recognition and become part of the world wide GMI community. Examples of those suited to the CMP program include a CEO of a large member based yachting or motor boat club and a senior manager of a marina manufacturer.

Certification requirements include a minimum of 10 years senior management experience with the last five within the marina industries, completion of the Advanced Marina Management School and submission of a 5000 word management report.Further details and an application form can be found at the GMI website www.globalmarinainstitute.net

In reviewing its first year of operation the GMI Board, headed by Mick Bettesworth, has concluded the GMI has had a successful year. Fifty seven delegates attended Marina Management courses from around the world and 18 certificates were issued to Certified Marina Managers and Operators with another six in the pipeline for early 2012. This year (2011) has also seen the launch of the inaugural Bellingham Marine Scholarship with Mike Glanville from MDL in the UK attending the Advanced Marina Managers course in Sydney, NSW. GMI members run a number of courses covering other areas of Marina operation including Marinas 101 and the Marina Operatives Manual.

At its recent meeting the GMI Board also signed off its three year Business Plan with some stretching targets including the delivery of courses in Asia and Europe. Marinas 101has already been delivered in Korea and is scheduled for delivery in Singapore in early 2012.

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. GMI is working 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.
