This popular 5-day course teaches crew to better support the most common yacht audio-visual (AV) and control systems. The focus is on familiarizing students with the essential theory and tasks required to proficiently manage the classroom’s own superyacht AV system.

Exclusively, this course also includes an official 1-day Crestron Technician syllabus and certification. Additionally, further Crestron systems training is delivered throughout the week.
