A yacht or superyacht will be crewed by the very best. The teamwork and crew must effortlessly blend together in order to assure the highest level of perfection is adhered to. Regardless of the type of yacht, be it a motor yacht or sail yacht, the hierarchy and skills each crew member hold becomes a valued part of the team.
If you’re just starting your career in the yachting industry, pursuing professional training and an official certificate can provide the boost you need for your career. Experienced crew know that continuing education is a vital progression in their career. By keeping up to date with new techniques and revisiting the traditional approaches, your chances of attaining higher level positions increases considerably.
The gruop training course is 2 days, your members of staff will be joined with a small group of like-minded students (no class is bigger than 8-10 students, but often much smaller). The yacht Management course is much more theoretical than our other training courses, and although there are many group discussions and debates, this is the least practical out of all our training options.
Group classes provide an open and engaging environment to learn. Videos, digital handbooks, and highly involved trainers encourage the student to participate in every detail of the training. At the end of the training course our trainers invigilate an exam to assess each student’s skills, providing feedback and instruction before awarding them with a certificate of completion.
Our Yacht Manager Trainers
Our yacht management trainers are experienced Butlers, Estate and House Managers with specific backgrounds in working at sea. They have been working in the industry for many years, and have an intimate knowledge with every type of service and scenario you may find yourself in.
Many of our students remark how enjoyable they find the stories and insights the trainers teach, giving first hand knowledge into the background of service both in a domestic and corporate environment. Although the trainers are mainly male, we have a smaller selection of female trainers for Middle Eastern households or crews should it be required.
House Management Training – Pricing
The cost for the two day group yacht management course is £600 (inclusive of VAT). This includes the handbook (digital), lunch, and certification.
