Business Strengths and Weaknesses
MARCSTA's strengths are its industry driven base with all members of its Committee of Management directly involved in day-to-day operations, its ability to identify and service industry needs and its non-profit structure.
At a service level, it has a dedicated and capable team of licensed training providers who enjoy the industry's respect.
MARCSTA has no overt weaknesses but its overall standing with industry and its responsiveness to industry's needs must be closely monitored by its Management Committee to ensure that both these factors are given the highest priority.
MARCSTA and the MARCSTA logo are registered trade marks.
