GMI Training


GMI through its partners delivers a range of courses for those working or looking to work in the marinas sector. We aim to ensure all marina staff can access education, training and certification. In addition to marina specific courses our partners deliver a range of business courses aimed at personal and business development such as customer service, marketing and sales. 


GMI offer a number of pathways for certification which are designed to recognise outstanding professionals in the Marina industry. All of the certification pathways are awarded after a rigorous process where candidates are asked to demonstrate knowledge, skills and experience in their chosen field. The GMI certifications are recognised across the world and increasingly in the developing Marina world as a sign that staff have reached a consistently high standard.
