IAMPE SELECTS PORT TAMPA BAY FOR FLORIDA’S PORT EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT EDUCATION CENTER
The International Association of Maritime and Port Executives (IAMPE) is pleased to announce that Port Tampa Bay has been selected as the Port Executive Management Center for the State of Florida. The Port will host advanced educational and training for port executives at the State’s seaports as well as from other ports throughout the Gulf of Mexico. The new center joins centers at the Loeb-Sullivan School at Maine Maritime Academy and the Maine Port Authority (Port of Portland) for providing programs for advanced executive management education and certification.
“We are very pleased with our association with the IAMPE,” said Paul Anderson, CEO and Executive Director of Port Tampa Bay. “We look forward to these educational opportunities as well as working with other educational institutions and ports to further enhance the professionalism of our respective staffs.” “The IAMPE welcomes this opportunity to work with the outstanding port team in Tampa to provide professional development to port professionals,” said Capt. Jeff Monroe, MM, AMPE, Director of Educational Programs and Standards for the Association.” The outstanding facilities and central location in this fast growing port will allow us to continue preparing the existing and future generations for key positions in the port industry.”
In addition to geographic centers, the IAMPE generally runs programs hosted by public and private port organizations throughout North America. The IAMPE is a non-profit educational institution that runs management seminars and provides professional certification to port and maritime managers in seaports and river ports. Programs are reviewed and approved for certification by the Associations Board, comprised of over 20 industry professionals. In addition to the Centers in Maine and now Tampa, educational partners include the Loeb-Sullivan Graduate School of International Business and Logistics at Maine Maritime Academy, who provides academic graduate level course credits, as well as the Connecticut Port Authority, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Georgia Ports Authority, North Atlantic Ports Association, Port of Alaska, Alaska Association of Harbormasters and Port Administrators, Houston Port Bureau, the Inland Rivers Port and Terminals Association and HDR Engineering. The IAMPE has educated and certified port professionals in most of the ports of the State and have over 2,000 alumni and members. The Association will use existing facilities in the Port of Tampa and provide research support, continuing education and other support consistent with its mission.
