Celebrating 15 years

We have spent the last decade and a half delivering and developing our suite our exceptional yacht training courses for crew at every stage of their journey.

When we started, our focus was on classroom-based and onboard training programmes. And in 2009, we pioneered the industry’s first Purser training course, and today our GUEST-accredited Purser programme remains the top choice for aspiring professionals, alongside our Leadership, Project Management, Service and Mental Health courses.

In 2017, we expanded into eLearning courses, launching our first-generation Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) in 2020. Now in its fourth iteration, the VLE has become a powerful tool for our students, offering centralised access to all course information, live sessions, and study materials.

Today, The Crew Academy is an industry-leading training provider with over 700 courses available both in-person and online. We offer regularly scheduled courses, as well as bespoke training and crew learning portals.
