The International Marina Institute is partnering with Wells Fargo Insurance to offer online safety training to Association of Marina Industries members, beginning Aug. 1.

AMI members will have access to two free IMI risk-management training courses: Hazardous Waste and Employee Safety Orientation. For AMI members who are not Wells Fargo customers, access to this training will be available on a sliding scale, based on the type of AMI membership a facility holds.

“The debut of this online training is an important step for IMI. This program offers our members access to training outside of IMI’s traditional delivery model,” IMI training coordinator Kayce Florio said in a statement. “It’s all about getting the training to the people who need it, in the most cost-effective manner possible. Wells Fargo has always been a great AMI supporter, and this is just one more way they are helping our members and the industry.”
