Chieftain Training is accredited by several external bodies and are audited/inspected by several national organisations.
Royal Yachting Association (RYA)
The RYA is the governing body for power-boating, sailing and PWC in the UK. They manage the most globally recognised training scheme for skippers and crew. We are recognised by the RYA to deliver the full range of shore-based and online Interactive courses.
IMO Standards of Training Certification and Watch-keeping (STCW)
The IMO is the International Maritime Organisation. It has 174 members states (countries) and it sets the global standard for STCW training for seafarers. In the UK the MNTB (Merchant Navy Training Board) interpret that standard and the MCA carry our the actual approval inspections. We are approved to deliver certain safety training and we use other approved providers for certain specialist STCW courses.
Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH)
Our range of Food Safety courses are accredited by the CIEH. This ensures our courses and certificates comply with the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) and are therefore accepted by the MCA for those involved with food preparation on commercial vessels.
