IMI offering marina management program in Puerto Rico

Publish date:

The International Marina Institute, a subsidiary of the Association of Marina Industries, will offer its Intermediate Marina Manager program in San Juan, Puerto Rico, June 17-21.

The IMM course is the first step toward the Certified Marina Manager and Certified Marina Operator certifications. Candidates must compete the IMM course to enroll in the Advanced Marina Management course that is the prerequisite to the CMM or CMO designation.

“We are excited to have been approached by Puerto Rico’s marina sector to offer marina management training to the marina managers on the island,” said Merritt Alves, IMI training coordinator. “We are hoping to capture students from the neighboring Caribbean Islands along with others who may find a June timeline a perfect fit for their needs and schedule.”

The IMM course covers marina-specific topics including marina law, contracts, risks and liabilities, staff management, fire- and emergency-response planning, environmental management, health and safety compliance and how best to market your marina.

Class fees—including accommodations, breakfast, lunch and all course materials—are $2,995 for AMI members or $3,470 for non-members.
