COMITT technical training will precede Miami IBEX
Members of the Marine Industry Technical Education Council will offer COMITT (Conference on Marine Industry Technical Training) as a full-day IBEX pre-conference seminar.

The program will take place Oct. 5 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. In addition, MITEC will be responsible for six workforce development seminars during IBEX Oct. 6-8.

MITEC is focusing its efforts on programs designed to help marine-industry businesses recruit and retain marine-industry employees, and to address the workforce shortage that has become a severe problem in the industry.
