AMI signs Navy marinas as members

Posted on

The Association of Marina Industries is offering membership to U.S. Navy marinas. The new relationship allows the association to train and certify Navy marina managers, AMI announced.

The Navy’s 32 Morale, Welfare and Recreation marinas signed on as AMI members. The new relationship allows naval marinas to take advantage of AMI’s member benefits, such as discounted training and certification and access to AMI’s network of professional speakers and educators through AMI’s training subsidiary, the International Marina Institute.

“The Navy is looking to train and certify its marina managers to ensure those who are managing their marinas have been given the proper tools to run a professional facility,” IMI training coordinator Kayce Florio said in a statement. “We are also creating a custom Marina Operations Manual that is a hybrid of our current manual and the regulations that are strictly Navy-centric. This is a huge step forward for AMI’s training, the U.S. Navy and the marina industry as a whole.”

Navy facilities are run by civilians, but the facilities are available solely to Navy personnel and their families, active-duty and retired. Because the marinas generally hold 100 slips or fewer, those marina managers will be looking primarily at the Certified Marina Operator training, which is geared toward smaller marinas.

The new relationship will include custom hybrid training programs that combine IMI’s standard curriculum with Navy topics and regulations delivered by instructors specializing in those topics. AMI also is coordinating a marina study tour for Navy personnel to show them how state-of-the-art facilities are managed and what might be possible in their own facilities if those who run them receive the proper training.
