The Ship’s Cook Certificate is available at the Bluewater Training Centre in Fort Lauderdale and 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).

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.
