DO I NEED ANY PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE?
Not at all. The courses are designed to give you an insight to the yachting industry, really making sure you know what will be expected of you and to provide you with some great knowledge and skills to make a great first impression. You need to be over 18 years old.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOUR COMPANY?
There are many companies around the world offering courses and no doubt all of them will teach you something new.
However, everyone has individual needs and areas they want to focus on, and larger companies can lose sight of this. They can often lack the personal touch. The training I provide is totally tailored to you and I follow up my courses with expert advice.
My courses are taught solely by me, applying my many years of experience of doing the job itself. During my career onboard superyachts, I moved up the ladder very quickly to Chief Stewardess and I believe this was down to the right attitude and to the incredibly valuable, personalised teaching I received.
IS IT A RECOGNISED COURSE?
The yachting industry is continually trying to find ways to standardise training for stewardesses the way it does with captains, engineers and deck crew. The simple answer is that apart from your STCW and ENG1 - and on some yachts, Food Hygiene Level 2 - courses are not necessary. However, I believe with training beforehand you can go in equipped with what you have learnt and you will be using what you have been taught immediately. Your confidence will show and you will be an asset to the yacht.
This isn't about what certificate you hold - it's about starting a new job showing you are serious about your new and exciting career.
