Are You Due For A Refresher?

In January of 2016 a change to legislation introduced a policy that requires all crew members on board super yachts and oil rigs to take part, and successfully complete a STCW Refresher course before the end of December.

A key reason behind the change is to ensure that all sea going vessels are up to the same standards of safety.

In light of this new requirement, we have increased the number of STCW 2010 refresher courses offered each and every month.

Kick Starting Maritime Careers

The Superyacht Training Camp is a great option for those who looking to get started working at sea as a deckhand, steward or stewardess, chef or an engineer. 

This week long course will teach you everything you need to know to be certified and completely confident with all aspects of your position when learning how to get started working on cruise ships and superyachts.


I’m amazed of how fast I got this stewardess position onboard M/Y Eclipse. I’ve never thought I will actually be a professional superyacht crew but Galileo Maritime Academy has taught me self confidence and how to succeed in the captain’s interview.
