Every year the Association hosts 3 days of classes in Castine at the Maine Maritime Academy. The last few years it’s been in late March and that seems to work out fairly well. There are classes for both novice and experienced harbor masters, and it’s an excellent chance for members to meet one another and some of the regulators and our partner agencies around the state.
The State of Maine requires that all new harbor masters complete the first year classes, and it has proven worthwhile even for our most grizzled members.
If there are any classes that you think would be beneficial to the members, please let us know and we can pursue those too.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Association, and in celebration, we are going to have some special entertainment at the Wednesday evening dinner –
The 2019 Application Form can be completed online, or mailed to: State of Maine Harbor Masters Association, PO Box 1515, Scarborough, ME 04070.
There’s also a Course Listing, in draft form it will be updated as soon as a newer one is available, though the classes for the basic group remain about the same from year to year.
There are also some materials from past training presentations that might be of interest. They are sorted by format and may be of some use.
