Drawing on her previous experience as a qualified teacher, Kim is ideally suited to provide a relaxed yet focused environment helping her students gain an in-depth understanding of the highest levels of service, housekeeping and organisational skills.·
Whether you are taking a gap year or building a career in yachting, our training programs can benefit both yourself and your employer. By developing skills, you can work more effectively than before allowing you to expand your experience and potentially your value.
The training exceeded expectations. There are a great balance of practical and theory and I feel a lot more confident going into the upcoming season.
It brought us together as a team and raised the level of service onboard. We have a greater understanding of what is required for service to run smoothly. An Amazing experience.
Kim was outstanding and explained everything clearly and in full detail. We all felt very comfortable and have grown tremendously in our individual roles. Looking forward to the next round of training.
