Instructor Training Program Requirements
Pat Rowland
In September 2012, the IAMI Board of Directors established that all IAMI Instructors must be either:
• An IAMI Certified Marine Investigator (CMI)
• An IAMI Board approved ‘Subject Matter Expert’ within a specific field
Whether you are or have been an IAMI Instructor in the past or want to become one for the first time, the following requirements must be met:
• Two consecutive years of IAMI Membership
• Certified Marine Investigator, or Subject Matter Expert
• Complete, submit new IAMI Instructor Application, Revised October 2012
• Provide current resume with list of courses taught within the last two years
• Be available to travel within the assigned region
In the absence of having attained IAMI Certified Marine Investigator status, an applicant may apply to the IAMI Board of Directors for a waiver as a ‘Subject Matter Expert’ within a specific field. Documentation of experience and expertise within a specific field must be provided for review by the Board. The Board may grant the application waiver upon a two-thirds (2/3) majority vote. Once granted, the non- CMI Instructor’s scope will be limited to their area of expertise within a specified subject. The IAMI Certified Instructor Program is addressed in Chapter 12 of the revised (02-23-14) IAMI SOPs.
An individual’s Certified Instructor status is effective as long as the member maintains their IAMI membership in good standing; fulfills their CMI requirements and submits the Instructor Training Record as completed during the calendar year or no later than December 31st.
