CMP Reference Letter

Dan Hughes CMM, Chairman of the European CMM Group: “I would strongly urge those who have reached the standards and criteria set for the CMM and CMP qualifications to attend the course and make an application. The benefits of being recognised as one of an elite group of marina professionals goes well beyond the qualification itself; the sharing of knowledge and best practice, the support and networking opportunities, career enhancement and the making of life-long friends is something quite unique in our industry. It may seem a significant undertaking, but we are all here to help steer you through the process to success”
