Global Marina Institute offers two management training scholarships

The Global Marina Institute has made two international scholarships available this year to attend Advanced Marina Management courses in Australia and the United Kingdom.

The course is one of the key prerequisites to acquiring marina industry certification.

The recipient of the British Marine Federation MarineTek International Scholarship will travel to Australia to participate in the Marina Industries Association AMM course in Sydney Sept. 14-19.

The recipient of the MIA Bellingham International Scholarship will travel to the U.K. to participate in the AMM course Oct. 26-31 on the southern coast of England.

“Being awarded the Bellingham Marine Scholarship was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and it was a brilliant experience both personally and professionally,” 2011 scholarship recipient Michael Glanville said in a statement. “I would highly recommend that marina managers looking to develop their knowledge and skills attend an advanced marina managers course.”

“The scholarships have been established to reward high-achieving marina managers with the competence and skills that are so highly valued in the industry,” GMI chairman Mick Bettesworth said. “The scholarships are also contributing to the flow of knowledge across the globe. The recipients bring to each course a different and stimulating perspective and take back to their regions newfound knowledge, ideas and networks.”

Scholarship winners will be announced at the ICOMIA World Marinas Conference June 2-4 in Istanbul, Turkey.
