Training courses

Entry Level

Kick start your career

If you are looking for a job in the yachting industry for the first time, certain training courses are essential and others are highly desirable in the eyes of potential employers.
  • RYA

    Taking the helm for the first time

    RYA qualifications are known and respected over the world. RYA training has been around for over 130 years, delivering 100 courses to professional and recreational boaters, which are right up to date with safety issues, regulations, and emerging trends.
  • MCA - OOW

    Keep your career on course

    The officer of the watch is qualified to be completely responsible for the safety of the yacht, the crew and the guests during the period of his or her watch. This is a considerable responsibility for which a lot of training is required.
  • MCA - Masters

    World-class instructors, unrivalled pass rate

    As master of a yacht you are responsible for the management of extremely large budgets and must motivate your team to achieve to the best of their abilities - often with little downtime - to create the perfect atmosphere for guests and owners.
  • Safety & Security

    Make your work environment safe for everyone

    Knowing what to do in an emergency can make the difference between a minor or a major incident when working at sea.
  • USCG

    In order to work aboard commercial U.S. flagged vessels, including charter yachts, mariners are required to hold United States Coast Guard Merchant Mariner endorsements. This includes U.S. vessels operating on all U.S. navigable waters including oceans, lakes, rivers and inland waterway routes. Each endorsement holds requirements for both educational training and sea service. The licenses are limited to those with U.S. citizenship or permanent residency status.
  • Engineering

    From AEC to Y2 and specialised qualifications

    Yachts often contain cutting edge equipment. The skills required behind the scenes to maintain the calm while the storm is happening below deck demands extremely qualified yacht engineers.
  • Interior

    Hospitality is at the heart of our industry

    The phrase "attention to detail" gains a whole new meaning onboard as yachts can only be compared to the best of luxury boutique hotels.
  • Galley

    Bridging the gap between ship & shore

    With the new requirements laid out in the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006), we have developed our training portfolio to provide the new mandatory courses required by cooks, chefs and any member of crew handling food.
  • Leadership & Management

    Influencing human behavior

    The 2010 'Manilla' amendments to the STCW convention introduced, for the first time, a requirement for management and leadership training for all ships' officers.
  • Teen Summer School

    Yachting in action

    Our summer school programme for teens offers a fun educational distraction for English speaking teens in the French Riviera... In 2017 we are able to offer two course options to teens from 16-18 yrs old in three locations; Antibes, Palma and Monaco.
  • Helicopter Training

    Develop a helipad team

    Yachts with helipads face a whole range of safety and operational challenges. In partnership with superyacht helipad specialist HeliRiviera of Cannes, we offer essential training for any yacht with helicopter operations.
