All journeys to a superyacht career start with STCW. It’s the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchingkeeping (STCW) course and it’s a compulsory requirement for any seafarer employed at sea. The course takes 11 days to complete and is made-up of 4 modules, as well as Proficiency in Designated Security Duties.
This covers all basic health and safety advice required on vessel, and covers hazards, personal protective equine, health and safety advice and general emergency routines
This covers all fire onboard prevention and fighting operations. The course uses gas-fired cribs and synthetic non-toxic smoke to produce realistic but controllable environment that’s are safe to train in.
This is an internationally recognised and compulsory course that covers CPR, breaks, splints, drowning, hypothermia and more.
This covers all sea survival in the merchant navy and how to survive in an incident at sea. We teach you the necessary skills to survive if you are ever unlucky enough to have to abandon ship with equal emphasis on both small vessels and larger ships.
This PDSD certification is required by crew who have been designated a security duty onboard their vessel. This applies to all Superyacht Crew and should be completed in place of Proficiency in Security Awareness (PSA).
The ENG1 Medical is a basic medical certificate and is as essential as your STCW’10. It is a mandatory requirement to prove you are fit to work as a yacht crew member at sea. Only MCA-approved doctors can perform an ENG 1 medical exam
