The International Marina Institute is offering a $250 discount on each of its 2009 training courses for those who register by Dec. 31.
IMI’s Intermediate Marina Management Course, to be held Feb. 22-26, focuses on marina operations, policies and procedures. Attendees will learn about policies and practices that have been successful around the country and in different nations, as well as new solutions to traditional management challenges.
The new Marina Operators Course, scheduled for March 1-5, is for those who manage the daily operations of the marina, but are not the full-charge facility manager — such as harbormaster or dockmaster — and for owners/operators of marinas with less than 100 slips. The course covers such technical and operational topics as managing teams, fueling and fueling systems, electrical systems, risk management and customer service.
The Advanced Marina Management Course, March 22-27, is a profit-management course designed for senior marina professionals. This course examines capital budgeting, financial management, project management, marketing, strategic planning, and contract law.
