Marina management course scheduled for Sept. 30

The International Marina Institute, in partnership with the International Boatbuilders Exhibition and Conference, is offering a course for those with little or no marina experience who are looking to enter the industry by way of a career shift or by purchasing and developing a marina.

Marina 101 is a four-hour course with nine presentations by Carl F. Wolf, CMM (certified marina manager), CMI (certified marine investigator) and former IMI president. The presentations offer insights into various aspects of marina operations: day-to-day and seasonal operations, maintenance, emergency preparedness, long-term planning and financial reports, and the various roles of a marina manager. Course fee is $250 for Association of Marina Industries members; $299 for non-members. It will be held Sept. 30 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida.

A Marina & Boatyard Study Tour in Tampa will take place Oct. 1. The study tour offers exclusive tours of Tampa area marinas and boatyards the day before the official opening of the IBEX Show. Florida marinas to be toured include the Twin Dolphin in Bradenton, Riviera Dunes in Palmetto, Maximo Marina & Boatyard in St. Petersburg, and the Antigua Cove and Village Marina, both at Little Harbor Marinas in Ruskin. The tour price includes lunch, transportation from the Tampa Convention Center to and from each of the five marinas, site visits to tour and analyze each marina and boatyard, and a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analyses collaboration at the end of the tour. Tour fee is $599 for AMI members; $699 for non-members.

IMI recommends attending the Marina 101 course before the Tampa Area Marina & Boatyard Study Tour to gain enough industry knowledge to walk the docks of the study tour facilities and see things from the perspective of a marina manager.

The IBEX Show will be held Oct.2-4 at the Tampa Convention Center, 333 S. Franklin St. in Tampa (33602).

To register for one or both of the courses, register first for IBEX, which is free. Register at www.ibexshow.com. To register for the courses, look for “Super Sessions” in the “Education” dropdown menu. For questions on these events, email malves@marinaassociation.org or call 401-682-7340.
