AAPA, IAMPE Team Up to Promote Professional Growth

AAPA and the International Association of Maritime Port Executives (IAMPE) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to acknowledge a new agreement that expands education and training opportunities for port and maritime industry professionals. Both AAPA and IAMPE have established professional development and training certification programs, and the MOU allows credits received from either program to be applied toward attainment of the other association’s professional certification. Candidates pursuing the AAPA Professional Port Management (PPM®) program certification will benefit from these additional opportunities. Also, the PPM program has been updated to allow completion within 18-24 months, reduce overall program costs and increase options for training online and through IAMPE.
