CMP Reference Letter

Tony Browne CMM, Chairman of the GMI: The Certified Marina Professional accreditation employs a rigorous set of criteria and a robust application process that ensures candidates have met the high standards required. This results in a very credible accreditation which is immediately recognisable across the industry, providing enhanced employment and career progression opportunities.

The IMM and AMM courses as a lead up to the CMP application not only deliver a fundamental global overview of marina management best practice, but also open the door to invaluable peer to peer networking opportunities.

I would strongly encourage anyone looking at furthering their career to start the process by reading the relevant material and enrolling in an IMM course.
