Join the consultation workshop and tell us what matters most in your business:

1.      What do managers in this industry need to know?

2.     What causes you the most frustration?

3.     What management resources could save your company money?

Based on our findings from the consultations, Quadrant Marine Institute will be crafting some hands-on workshops to test out our new management training curriculum. If you’re interested in being part of the test workshops, please let us know and we will contact you once we’ve got the dates lined up.

Our goal is to develop a marine service manager course that we can offer regularly to interested businesses and individuals in the BC marine service industry.
