Bluewater announces new partnership with the Interior Training Academy

The Bluewater training team has announced that from the 1st of April 2014, the company will be offering a 5 day entry programme in association with the Interior Training Academy, run by Abacus & March.

With the Interior Training Academy, established in 2013, the company will be offering a 5 day entry programme which comprises three of the GUEST entry level qualifications. GUEST certification, is the industry standard for interior qualifictions, and stands for the Guidelines of Unified Excellence in Service Training. The certification route was introduced to the industry in 2012 by the Professional Yachting Association (the PYA).

The three entry level modules covered by the ‘Entry Programme’ are the Interior Introduction, Interior Basic Food Service and the Wine & Cocktail Introduction, which are all valuable skills needed to be an effective yacht crew member.

In addition to the entry level qualifications offered in the training villa on the Cap d’Antibes, Bluewater will be offering a more bespoke training onboard for interior teams that would like to raise the standards that they are offering onboard. These courses can cover an array of different elements from housekeeping to service, etiquette and operations.

Terry Gilmore of the Interior Trainig Academy comments, “I feel that this is the time to provide professional first class teaching methods to interior crew, where it is so badly needed. We are looking forward to developing the relationship between ourselves and Bluewater to give interior crew a chance to take their skills to the level expected in this industry.
