No hesitation in recommending the course
As a serving Master Mariner, employed by a large yacht management company since 2004 as an ISM / ISPS Co-ordinator, I embarked upon the Diploma in Superyacht Operations to gain a more in depth understanding of the large yacht industry. The course content was well thought out and spread across the spectrum of understanding required of senior yacht crew. Its aim of supplementing the professional qualification of officers aspiring to command was met and exceeded. I found the split between distance learning and a final exam gave the course a credibility lacking in some others. Although the three hour exam is open book, it should not be mistaken as a gift and certainly tested the understanding of the previously completed modules. I would have no hesitation in recommending the course to others, for both enhancing existing knowledge and the sense of achievement gained.

Deeper understanding
The Diploma in Superyacht Operations took me a year to complete and pass with merit. It required considerable commitment to accomplish all the modules and the exam. It was worth it! Despite having worked within the Marine industry for the past ten years, I felt that the course gave me a deeper understanding and insight into the myriad of players and their roles within in this exciting industry.

Exciting and interesting
I have been in the yachting industry since 2001 and have always found it exciting and interesting. As I was lucky enough to work my way up to purser, I enquired a few years ago about a course that would assist me in learning the general management and operational side of yachting. Eventually I came across this one a couple of years later and wished I could have done it earlier, as it is a very good insight into all the areas of operation. I would recommend this course both to new joiners to the industry and people who have been in it for a while as there is a lot that can be learnt from this course. It covers all areas of operations to a good level and gave me a better understanding into areas I was not so familiar with.

Beneficial to all interested in the yachting industry
The Superyacht Operations course is exceptionally well put together and provides students with the opportunity to learn many aspects of operational management from well respected industry experts. Never before have I had the opportunity to develop my knowledge of so many facets of operational management within the one course. The course is targeted at yacht crew, however, in my opinion this course would be beneficial to any individual who has an interest in the yachting industry.

Invaluable
I found the Diploma in Superyacht Operations invaluable in consolidating and extending my knowledge as a Yacht Manager. The course was well run with excellent reference material for all 12 modules. The modules covered every aspect of operations that one could expect to need in detail, and they provided information on where to source further information. The course deepened and broadened my knowledge and understanding of every aspect of the industry and it has provided some useful contacts. I would recommend this course whole-heartedly to anyone seeking to enhance their effectiveness and credibility in the industry, or equally to anyone just interested in learning more about this fast developing industry.

A great course
I think it’s a great course, for me as a female in the industry especially. I’ve learned heaps… and now I have a WAY better idea of how a yacht is managed, and it’s given me a good insight into all the bits and pieces that captains and managers have to deal with that the rest of the crew often don’t get too involved in. Especially if you work on the interior. I know a couple of Pursers who took the course the year before me, I spoke with them before I signed up to see what their views on the course were and it’s all been very positive. As a crew agent it’s helped me know my client better too. It gives you a great base of knowledge upon which to build, and if you want to move up the ranks and become chief stew or purser in the future then it’s great to understand things like ISM, ISPS, boat accounts, what goes on within the yard etc… so you can be your captain’s right hand (wo)man! If you are serious about the industry and want to give your knowledge a boost and learn about different things then I can’t recommend it enough. The course is aimed at all superyacht professionals, but personally I really recommend it to the girls and the more junior crew who want to learn more in order to progress. And on a personal note it’s kind of rewarding to see the looks on senior crew’s faces when you jump into a conversation about ISM with some interesting points… :o)

Very very useful
Even as a holder of a Master Mariner’s diploma I found the training really useful and informative. The training is undoubtedly valuable and glorious and gave me more self-confidence for carrying out my duties. It was really just what I wanted! It was a leap upon my knowledge for the yachting industry and now I am trying to figure how to move forward in the most effective way with all these amazing ideas and knowledge were given to me. I am so excited to have found so many wonderful new resources and met so many important people in the industry. I cannot wait to take the time to complete my plan taking my career to the next step!

Rather good
I've done the course- it's actually rather good. It's a 12 module distance learning course covering various basic topics regarding operations of a superyacht. E.g there are modules on project management, accounts, ISM, interior management, ISPS and so on. I strongly recommend it to the girls aiming for Purser positions in the future (or chief stew) as it gives them a good overall basic knowledge upon which to build, not to mention confidence when seniors on board start talking about subject they probably haven't had much exposure to previously (ISM is always a good one). Also it's good for those peeps looking to step up to become captain in the future and want to get a good grasp of what's expected of them apart from actually driving the vessel. I know senior captains who've completed the course and their feedback has generally been that's it's a good course but didn't teach them anything new. It's more something captains could recommend to their crew.

Helped me understand
I have spent 9 years serving superyachts in India this course has made me understand certain aspects of which I was not conscious of. I am sure I will be a better agent from now on.
