Professional Development of Marina Managers

'CMM’s at their meeting.'    MIAA    Click Here to view large photo

A recent gathering of Certified Marina Managers (CMM’s) was the biggest event of its type ever held in the Southern Hemisphere.

25 CMM’s from across Australia, Asia and New Zealand met at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre as part of their commitment to on-going professional development.

CMM’s were updated on a range of industry education and development topics including the new marina attendants course for teenagers wanting to enter the industry and the state of developments in the Australian, New Zealand and Asian markets. There was a range of discussions relating to industry environmental and service accreditation programs and developments at the Global Marina Institute (GMI) including the roll out of the new Certified Marina Professional (CMP) designation.

The CMM’s also participated in an intensive presentation skills learning session tailored to meet the needs of CMM’s when they are delivering industry training and when presenting in their own work places. CMM’s receive credit points for participation in such meetings. They need a minimum of 10 credit points per annum to maintain their certification status.

David Randall, the marina manager at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club in Sydney was presented with his CMM award by Marina Industries Association (MIA) President Andrew Chapman CMM.

The Chairman of the MIA Education Committee Steve Sammes CMM said the success of the meeting is another indicator of the growing capacity of the marina industry to create a strong and highly relevant career pathway for its own members. 'The industries professional development pathway ensures CMM’s have a widely respected certification. It also provides a plan for on-going professional development and ensures that they as industry leaders give back to their industry in the form of hands-on industry training'.

The CMM’s built into their Sydney meeting attendance at the Sydney International Boat Show. A number of CMM’s were also involved in an intensive two day MIA study tour involving detailed analysis of nine marinas and boat yards across the greater Sydney region.
