Life on a Superyacht - A short course, how to apply for your first appointment. Life on a superyacht, your duties, your contract, pay and conditions, watches, professional standards and behaviour. The course also gives you a clear idea of your work environment, the sorts of work you will do and an idea of what your officers / guests will expect from you.
These courses are ideal for crew training for their first position on a superyacht or megayacht. STCW2010 is a mandatory course for all commercial seafarers.
