Deckhand and Yacht Steward(ess) Training Courses in Fort Lauderdale
We offer extensive and specialist courses for deckhands and interior crew that would like to gain practical experience and knowledge to boost their employability and ability to build a successful career. These courses are suitable for both new and experienced crew who would like to excel on board a superyacht.
Yacht Training Courses available:
10 Day Steward(ess) Academy
This is an opportunity to gain extensive practical experience in all important interior duties. Our 10 000 sq ft training facility allows us to simulate real onboard duties under supervision by a chief stewardess with over 15 years of superyachting experience.
The course is designed for students who would like to gain real proficiency in their duties as opposed to being introduced to them during more traditional 3-5 day introductory courses.
Basic deck work practicals will be covered as well so that you are able to help during docking procedures and other deck department activities. This is a great opportunity to broaden your skillset and become an asset to all departments.
By completing the 10 day steward(ess) academy, candidates will have real practical experience usually only attained “on the job”. You will have references from captains and heads of departments, stating your capabilities. We do provide job assistance through our network to candidates who show competence and a strong work ethic.
8-Week Deckhand Academy
Whether you are a new or experienced deckhand, completion of this course will allow you to take on more responsibility, impress your captain and increase the speed at which your career will progress.
It will allow you to build a significant advantage over other deck crew through decades of knowledge and experience, passed down by our captains, experienced deck crew, and specialist industry professionals. This is a unique opportunity to gain extensive knowledge and practical experience in tasks that can take years to become competent at, without a training program such as this.
Included in the academy are extensive line handling practicals, 10 days of practical tender handling, professional product training, polishing, paint & varnish application, theory, splicing, knots, and much much more.
12-Day Tender Handling Academy
When you obtain your driver’s license to drive a car, you are not ready to become a chauffeur for high-profile clients. The same applies to your Powerboat II or Rib Master license. A great deal of time behind the helm is required before driving with guests on board (especially on larger tenders).
The opportunities to gain the experience required can result in a long & drawn-out learning curve that can take years, especially on larger yachts, due to the increased number of deck crew.
We have designed our Tender Handling Academy to directly meet the standard required by the luxury yachting industry. It is a unique opportunity to gain confidence and competence so that you can take on more responsibility, open up additional job opportunities and ultimately progress at a much faster rate.
With 2 days of theory and 10 days of practical training behind the helm, you will be ready to take charge of this highly competitive position.
Gain an advantage over other crew and enroll today.
