Pacific Coast Accredited Maritime Port Manager and Executive Program


Cal Maritime is hosting the Pacific Coast Accredited Maritime Port Manager and Executive Program on April 1-5, 2019.

The Maritime Port Manager program is designed as an intensive two-day foundational seminar that covers all aspects of the port industry. It provides employees new to the industry with a comprehensive look at the fundamentals of port management, and provides industry vets with a refresher of the global transportation system.

The Maritime Port Executive program is designed to build on the foundations established in the MPM program. The MPE session is a two and a half day seminar that covers the specifics of how ports and marine terminals fit into communities; waterway, road and rail access; property and risk management; logistics from the shippers perspective including care, control and custody of cargo and the pricing of transportation services; tariffs and operational documents; business development; public and media relations; and strategic/master/logistics and cargo planning.
