Boat Handling Course
NZ MOA has had Maritime New Zealand approve a boat handling course for Marina staff. The course targets those that do not have a skippers ticket or other commercial tickets. Once a Marina is an approved participant, they may use MOA's training framework to have Marina staff approved to use a Marina tender for Marina operations.
Through our partnership with the Marina Industries Association of Australia we offer member rates for courses including: Introduction to Marinas, Intermediate Marina Management, Advanced Marina Management, Certified Marina Management, Boatyard Course, Marine Service Managers Course and a Straddle Lift Operators Course.

This ever evolving programme allows members to participate in an industry owned programme. It allows Marinas to review their systems and procedures to best recognise their environmental responsibilities.
