What additional training is needed to work onboard a cruise ship or super yacht?
Aside from your education and work experience, there are several maritime-specific qualifications that are needed.
To work within the Hotel and Guest Service department our clients require relevant education and training in hospitality as well as hospitality work experience from 4 or 5-star establishments. Roles within the Deck department might also require some maritime-specific qualifications.
For all roles, the maritime-specific qualifications which are needed are STCW Basic Safety Training (this is a one-week course) and includes the following elements:
Personal Survival Techniques
Fire Prevention and Fire Fighting
Elementary First Aid
Personal Safety and Social Responsibilities
Additionally, Security Awareness is also needed
All seafarers will also need a seafarers medical and for some roles, especially in the superyacht industry, additional short courses might be required depending on the position you are applying for. These can be obtained close to joining once your appointment is confirmed.
