The Far East market is important to the marine industry’s future.

The Global Marina Institute-endorsed Advanced Marina Management course was offered in Asia for the first time July 17-21 at Ocean Marina Yacht Club in Thailand.

The course was delivered by the Marina Industries Association with participants coming from marinas in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Qatar.

“The Asian marina industry has come a long way over the past decade,” MIA president and contributing lecturer Andrew Chapman said in a statement. “It is very significant that we now have a core of trained marina professionals in the region. The course is a significant indicator of the maturity and growth of the marina industry in Asia”.

Course lecturers include a mix of certified senior marina managers from Thailand, Singapore and Australia as well as specialist business professionals.

AMM course participant and marina manager Balan Aramagan from Senibong Cove Marina in Malaysia said participation in the course was valuable for his career development.

“Participation in the course will also greatly assist my ability to support the significant growth plans for Senibong Marina,” Aramagan said in a statement.

As part of the course, participants undertook a major group project scoping the viability of marina development and participating in lectures covering marina and business management topics.

MIA’s next AMM course will be in Sydney in September.

The next marina course in Asia will be the Intermediate Marina Management course to be held in Malaysia in October.
