Course Description
A two week course providing the essential qualifications needed to enter the superyacht industry as a deckhand. The course is suitable for complete beginners who want to achieve commercial qualifications

Working on a superyacht is an exciting career option, leading to travel and adventure opportunities worldwide.

The course is split into four sections:

1. STCW 95 Basic Safety Training - a compulsory qualification for crew on superyachts and all vessels over 24 metres.

There are four elements to this five-day day shorebased course:

- STCW 95 Elementary First Aid
- STCW 95 Personal Survival Techniques
- STCW 95 Personal Safety & Social Responsibilities
- STCW 95 Fire Prevention & Fire Fighting

2. RYA Short Range Radio (GMDSS/DSC) - a legal requirement so you can talk on the radio.

This one-day course teaches you marine radio techniques and emergency procedures.

3. RYA Powerboat Level 2 - a legal requirement to drive the yacht's tenders, which can be quite large.

This two-day course provides intensive training in the practical skills and theory knowledge needed by the small boat driver.

4. RYA Competent Crew - you need to know the basics of sailing and seamanship so you can carry out your daily tasks on deck.

This five-day liveaboard course introduces you to sailing in the sheltered waters of the Solent, and takes you to the level required to be a useful member of the crew.

On completion of this course, you will have all the qualifications required to apply for a job as a deckhand on a superyacht. Online recruitment from Flying Fish will help you with your job search
