Benefits of CMP

Tony Browne CMM, Chairman of the GMI: “The Certified Marina Manager 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 CMM 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.”
