Travel corridors allow Tradewinds Engineering superyacht training centres to re-open

Crew training specialist Tradewinds Engineering (Technical Passport) has started taking bookings for courses at its training centres in Palma and Devon, thanks to the introduction of travel corridors* and the easing of lockdown restrictions in Spain and the UK.

The UK government has issued a list of 59 destinations which now pose a ‘reduced risk’ from coronavirus. However, not all of the listed countries have announced reciprocal exemption, so Tradewinds advises that individuals check carefully before committing to travel.

The list focuses on countries in Europe, island nations around the world (including the Caribbean) and countries further east (including Vietnam, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand).

Tradewinds will continue to offer discount on all of its online courses for those that are still unable to travel in spite of the latest developments.

<h2>Superyacht crew training courses</h2>

Tradewinds’ Marine Refrigeration course, for engineers working on superyachts, covers the theory of refrigeration and teaches attendees how to repair, troubleshoot and commission these systems.

Course dates:

13th -17th July 2020 Cullompton, Devon, UK
10th – 14th August 2020 Palma de Mallorca, Spain
31st August – 4th September 2020 Cullompton, Devon, UK
12th – 16th October 2020 Palma de Mallorca, Spain
9th – 13th November 2020 Palma de Mallorca, Spain
14th -18th December 2020 Cullompton, Devon, UK

Tradewinds has specific procedures using Government advice to provide a safe environment for our clients and employees. Safe Travels to you all.
