British Marine provides a range of training services for the marina sector:
People who have attended the Advanced Marina Management School and who have at least five years experience at management level in a marina, can work towards their Certified Marina Manager (CMM) certification. This certification is a major step toward international recognition as a marina manager who has distinguished himself or herself as an outstanding professional.
For people who works in the Marina Industry but who are not directly managing a Marina facility, the Certified Marina Professional (CMP) certification is available. Candidates need at least 5 years managerial experience, with at least 3 of these being in the Marina Industry.
A new Marina and Boatyard Qualification and Apprenticeship is now available, which forms part of the Maritime Skills Alliance (MSA) Level 2 Diploma in Maritime studies, which is offered by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). The qualification and apprenticeship is aimed at those working in Marinas and Boatyards involved in moving boats in marinas, moving and storing boats in marina hard standing areas and providing basic services such as providing fuel and pumping out grey water.
British Marine, in conjunction with the Global Marina Institute (GMI) and The Yacht Harbour Association, organises an bi-annual Marina Conference, which brings together marina professionals from all over the world.
The Global Marina Institute (GMI) is a partnership between British Marine (UK) and Marina Industries Association (Australia), formed to deliver global marina training and certification, with the aim of maintaining and increasing marina standards across the world.
Membership of the The Yacht Harbour Association embraces marina and mooring operators, boatyards, professionals, consultants and suppliers of equipment and services to the marina industry, both in the UK and overseas.
