"I have been lucky to attend the IMM course being delivered by British marine at Dubai. For anyone wishing to grow in the marine industry, this is a great step to learn and start your journey. The course is designed by combining the current industry trends and guest lectures by regional experts on various critical areas of marine operations. In addition to gaining knowledge, we gather information on emerging market trends , latest technology developments, resources on policies and best practices to learn and take back to our marina. What I personally find fascinating is the opportunity to network with other delegates who represent from all over Middle East and beyond."
