Engineering Crew Training

Course Details

If you are interested in beginning an engineering career on small vessels or on superyachts, this course is a great starting point. Our Engineering Crew Training course has been designed to meet the largest skills shortage gap in the maritime industry and will provide you with the training you need to enter the superyacht industry via an engineering route. This programme is also the perfect pathway for experienced and new crew who want to work on small vessels in an engineering capacity.

Although this training is suitable for new crew members, some hands on experience in specific engineering employment is desirable as is a high level of professionalism and maturity.
