The Ship’s Cook Certificate is available through Ocean Wave Monaco in the South of France.

It is a requirement (as of August 2014) for all Chef/Cooks on board charter yachts with 10 crew or more to have a Ship’s Cook Certificated crew member onboard at all times. This is the result of changes in the law brought about by the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006).

For upcoming dates for the Ship’s Cook Assessment, please email Ocean Wave directly: 

The assessment provides a way for all chefs to have their skills objectively assessed in a controlled environment. The purpose of the assessment is to verify that a candidate can cook correctly and safely across a specified range of techniques and foodstuffs. There will be no attempt to grade candidates on artistic skill beyond that normally expected of a working cook; it is not a competition. 

Entry Standards: 
• Minimum 18 years of age 
• 1 year of sea service as a chef/cook or 1 year of experience as a chef or cook on land and 1 month of sea service.
