eLearning Courses


At TCN we recognise the importance of attracting the right people to the luxury yachting industry from the outset to ensure low crew turnover. Our goal is to find young crew that have no illusions about the high level of service and hard work expected of them. To this end, we decided to create an innovative, online eLearning course targeting newcomer stewards and stewardesses, Introduction to Interior Service. We developed this in collaboration with the well-known global maritime instruction and assessment specialists, Marlins, using their expertise to guarantee an engaging and highly effective learning product. The obvious benefit of having an online course is that people can study at their convenience anywhere in the world. The level of English is easy to understand for non-native speakers.

We highly recommend this induction course to any young people considering joining the industry and wanting a realistic portrayal of yachting life and interior duties. The course can help in their decision of whether yachting is the best career choice for them, particularly with the requisite certification costs they will incur. This interactive, fun course is truly informative and comprehensive, covering the following subjects:

  • Introduction to the yachting industry
  • Working life as a yachting professional
  • Emergency response on board a yacht
  • Yacht interior housekeeping
  • Flowers and plants
  • Laundry
  • Food service, drinks and cigars
  • Sanitation and hygiene

The average study time is 7 hours and concludes with a final assessment, enabling individuals to check their knowledge and receive a Certificate of Completion.

We also recommend this induction course to interior maritime professionals wishing to move across from other industry sectors such as the cruise line industry, or, to land based yachting personnel working closely with crew and curious to know more about their counterparts.
