Yacht Crew Training

Yacht Crew Training

Deck and Engineer Officers serving in UK registered private or commercial yachts and sail training must be qualified in accordance with the MCA Code of Practice for Safety of Large Commercial sailing and Motor Vessels.

Lairdside Maritime Centre has been providing Deck Officer training to the Superyacht industry since 2001.  We now work in conjuction with John Percival Marine Associates (JPMA) providing the simulator courses.  There is no doubt that our coures are challenging.  However, a well-prepared student will do well and will leave the Centre with a good understanding of the duties and responsibilities of an OOW, CM or Master.  We firmly believe that the most effective training can only be provided on an approved full mission simulator.

Officer of the Watch training comprises :-

Chief Mate training comprises :-

Master training comprises :-

As a Merchant Navy Training College we also provide a full range of STCW'95 courses.  Whilst not all may be appropriate, there are some, which you may find of great value.  These include: Bridge Team Management, Ship Handling (we will model your ship, including propulsion systems), High Speed Navigation, ECDIS and Ship Security Officer.
