SUPER-YACHT STEWARDESS PROGRAMME OVERVIEW:
The Superyacht Industry is a very competitive game to get into. Thousands of young adults are attracted by the sunshine, high salaries and global travel of this glamorous industry. If a career in the super-yacht industry appeals to you, there is no question that you need to have the basic training in safety on your CV before anyone will even consider you . Some of this training is legally required to work at sea; some is expected by the industry. Chieftain Training offers a 10 day programme to prepare super-yachts stewardesses for sea.

WHAT IS COVERED ON THE SUPER-YACHT STEWARDESS COURSE?
The Fast-Track Superyacht stewardess programme focuses on three separate areas. These include:
Basic Safety Training
STCW Basic Safety Training includes 5 shorter courses. Four of them are compulsory for all seafarers, the fifth is required by most employers.
Under the Maritime Labour Convention anyone involved in the handling or preparation of food on board a super yacht is required to hold an MCA approved Food Safety Certificate. Our Level 2 Food Safety at Sea Course is perfect for this.
Although driving tenders and using marine radio is not required of every stewardess it will make you far more employable if you can turn your hand to other onboard duties from time to time. Consequently our program, includes the RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course and the GMDSS Short Range Certificate.
