STCW 2-day basic training (blended)

USCG approved and UK MCA recognised

STCW covers the standards of training and certification for all seafarers including standards for licensed deck and engineering officers, special training, emergency and security training. Seven Seas Preparatory offers an exclusive 2-day blended STCW basic training, completed with a combination of online training and 2 days of practicals. The STCW basic safety training course teaches students critical safety information to prepare them for work on a yacht. Students will learn sea survival techniques, firefighting skills, first aid, and how to safely conduct oneself on board a yacht. This course is the same approval as the standard 5-day course.

2-day deckhand course (Orlando & Fort Lauderdale)

The 2-day deckhand course is a great introduction to working as a deckhand on a yacht. It is designed for those interested in seeking a position on yachts as a deckhand, but are unsure on how to best prepare, or how to tell if the job is the right fit. The course will teach entry level skills with Seven Seas Preparatory Academy's highly qualified team of instructors. All instructors hold the highest deck level of Master Mariner Unlimited. The course teaches:

Finding a job

  • Resume/CV
  • Interviewing
  • Next steps

Terminology

  • Nautical terminology commonly used on board a boat

Seamanship

  • Tying knots
  • How to anchor and moor a boat
  • How to drive and steer a boat

Navigation

  • How to read charts and maps
  • How to find your position at sea

Deck work

  • How to maintain the deck
  • Basics of maintaining equipment

STCW yacht navigation watch rating

USCG approved and UK MCA recognised

The STCW Navigational Watch Rating (NWR) certificate is becoming an increasingly common requirement for deckhands on large yachts which follow a commercial or passenger yacht code. The STCW NWR course teaches students advanced deck skills and a specific set of watchkeeping tasks to become a valuable deck crew member. It also helps signal to the captain and agencies that the student is someone who takes the role seriously and is looking to further their career and experience. The certificate acts as an official record of experience which can be taken from yacht to yacht throughout one's career.

Yacht stewardess/steward 3-day course

A lifestyle of exotic travel and meeting new people all over the world, while earning money, are just some of the exciting benefits of working on a luxury yacht. The work is demanding and with Seven Seas Preparatory Academy's 3-day superyacht crew interior course, taught by industry professionals, students will be prepared with the basics of working on a yacht, bartending and food service.

Thank you!
I have taken several classes all over the U.S. And Seven Seas Preparatory Academy is absolutely top notch. Marcus, the owner is outstanding and extremely knowledgeable about everything. Three courses overall, and I am super satisfied and happy with each one. I cannot say enough to thank or compliment them.

Engaging and informative!
Excellent course. I had almost no nautical experience prior to do this so I had a lot to learn. The online modules were engaging and informative. The best part was the practical, however. The lessons really helped solidify the information and I feel much more comfortable working on a yacht or ship. Thank you so much!

Very well set up from a logistical standpoint- made it very easy to do a quick trip over a weekend instead of having to take a full week! All well planned out and straightforward- locations easy to find. Instructors were very knowledgeable and experienced- would highly recommend!
