This year due to Covid we will be changing things up slightly to account for fewer attendees.  We will be sponsoring three days of training that is open to all members and to all interested law enforcement officers, insurance investigators, surveyors, and Coast Guard officials. These training normally cover the various aspects of marine theft and fraud, boating accidents, and very specific investigative techniques that will assist investigators in their investigations.


Examples of topics normally covered:

  • HIN formats; raising, tracing, and lifting HIN's
  • Trailer serial numbers, outboard and inboard serial numbers, and vessel identification numbers
  • Bank and insurance fraud investigations
  • Fire/arson investigations
  • Updates on the status of NCIC 2000 and VIDS
  • Updates on changes to Coast Guard regulations and policies.

IAMI initiated the Certified Marine Investigator training and testing in 2004. This designation for IAMI Members will ensure that marine investigators are qualified in various aspects of marine terminology, forensic photography, investigation techniques, etc. Read more about IAMI's CMI Program in the 'Member's Only' area.
