NEW INLAND PORTS MARINE PORT EXECUTIVE SEMINAR
The new Inland Port Manager (IPM) and Inland Marine Port Manager (IMPE) are equivalent to the current Blue Water programs but with specific information related to the Inland Rivers and Port industry. The program was developed with the support and guidance of the Inland Rivers and PortAssociation and their Education Committee.
The initial seminar offering will take place October 31st to November 4th at the Lange-Stegmann Company Training Conference Center, 1 Angelica Street, St. Louis, MO.
The program is an immersion style seminar program covering 36 total hours and 22 sessions for the IMPE Certification.
