GLOBAL MARINA INSTITUTE: SPECIAL REPORT Hogan joins GMI Board John Hogan CMP, CEO of Superior Jetties and director of the Marina Industries Association (MIA), has been appointed to the GMI Board. Forging ahead with industry training and certification 2014 was a good year for the development of marina training according to Global Marina Institute (GMI) chairman, Mick Bettesworth. “Over the 12 month period, the number of enrolments in GMI endorsed management courses increased to 88; a 7% increase over 2013,” he said. “Also most pleasing was the extended range of course delivery with Intermediate Marina Management courses held in Malaysia (16 enrolments) and Dubai (15 enrolments) as well as courses in the UK and Australia.” Steady gains were also made in the industry take-up of certification; part of the GMI continuing professional development pathway. While the Certified Marina Manager (CMM) continues to be most popular, the relatively new Certified Marina Professional (CMP) designation gained recognition globally. A further highlight of the year was the first ever Marina Investment Seminar, held in Sydney in October. “Twenty marina owners, developers, valuers, financiers and lawyers attended the seminar,” Bettesworth confirmed. “The ongoing roll-out of this seminar around the globe is important for our industry to raise its profile as a serious investment Advanced Marina Manager course attendees in Southampton, UK, with GMI board member, Sarah Dhanda, senior federation director BMF (far right). opportunity. The next seminar is scheduled for spring 2015 and will be held in London.” GMI partners – the British Marine Federation (BMF) and the Marina Industries Association (MIA) – have also seen growth for other marina related courses. BMF has had 22 enrolments for its Marina Operatives Pack and the MIA reports growth in the take up of technical webinars and its Marina Technical Tour. The MIA also consolidated its marina training in China with five courses delivered in 2014 and more planned for 2015. Scholarship winners In addition to presenting six new CMM certificates at the ICOMIA 2014 World Marinas Conference in Istanbul in June, the GMI announced the winners of its two international scholarships. David Osman, marina manager at d’Albora Marinas Pier 35 in Melbourne, Australia and Alistair Clarke, marina manager Weymouth Marina, Dean & Reddyhoff Marinas UK, were funded to attend GMI Advanced Marina Manager (AMM) courses. Mick Bettesworth (left), chairman of the GMI welcomes new board member, John Hogan CMP, CEO of Superior. The Board comprises nine directors representing its partners the BMF and MIA; certified marina members; the ICOMIA Marinas Group; and skills-based appointees. GMI chairman, Mick Bettesworth, welcomed Hogan and his “valuable perspective on the training needs of the industry”. Hogan said it was an honour and privilege to be elected. “I have always felt strongly about the need for our industry to provide an attractive career pathway. It is essential that we attract and retain talented personnel in the marina industry. GMI provides the mechanism to ensure marina education is steadily enhanced around the world,” he said. The UK winner, sponsored by Marinetek, attended the course in Sydney, Australia and the Australian winner, sponsored by Bellingham Marine, attended the course in Southampton, UK. The AMM course is one of the key prerequisites to acquiring marina industry certification and the scholarships contribute to the flow of knowledge around the globe. “The recipients bring to each course a different and stimulating perspective and take back to their regions newfound knowledge, ideas and networks,” Bettesworth explained. www.marinaworld.com - January/February 2015 51
