What Other Courses Will I Need To Do?

This course is already included as part of our Superyacht Deckhand Package or Superyacht Interior Crew Package course.

You will need to complete the STCW95+10 course as the certification is a mandatory requirement for a crew position on a Superyacht. However, STCW95+10 by itself, does not qualify you for a crew position. You need to complete additional training like the Deckhand &/or Stewardess course to gain the certification and experience required if you expect a captain to sign you onboard. If you lack these skills and certification, we recommend you sign up for the Superyacht Interior Crew Package, the Superyacht Deckhand Package or the combined Superyacht Interior Crew & Deckhand Package

This course is ideally for students with limited time to complete courses and can be added onto an STCW95+10 &/or Small Powerboat & RIB Master (tender driving) booking.

Training Location

The course is run from our Office in Warriewood NSW , Superyacht Crew Academy Training Facility at 25a/5 Ponderosa Parade , Warriewood. The facilities are a 45min drive North of Sydney’s CBD. To see a map of how to find us, Superyacht Training Facilities
