The potential for growth is tremendous in this dynamic industry, especially in the area of energy and in particular, its conservation. CMI has embarked on a number of energy based projects which are managed and executed through the Institute’s Renewable Energy and Productivity Centre under the School of Advanced Skills. These projects include but are not limited to the assembly, installation and distribution of alternative energy equipment, and water purification. They facilitate training, avenues of employment, entrepreneurship, certification, innovation, safety, discipline and environmental protection – tenets which are highly promoted by the Institute. Consistent with its Blue Ocean Strategy philosophy and Caribbean scope, scale and stature, the Institute has forged in excess of 70 borderless strategic (local and international) partnerships, with educational institutions shipping and energy companies, government agencies and private sector entities. These arrangements vary in scope but all exist to assist CMI in producing leaders.
