Crew Network Antibes Announces Innovative E-Learning Course

Posted on: 08/19/2014

The “Introduction to Interior Service” e-learning course was developed in partnership with the UK-based training brand, Marlins, a global leader in instruction and assessment for the maritime industry, specialising in interactive e-learning content development. 

Course content is aimed at interior crew who are new to the superyacht sector, portraying a realistic picture of yachting life and interior duties through a series of modules including housekeeping, types of table service, flower arranging, sommeliery and hygiene. The average study time is seven hours and concludes with a final assessment, enabling individuals to check their knowledge and receive a certificate of completion.

Joey Meen of the Professional Yachting Association (PYA) commented. “As a program it offers a great insight to the level of knowledge required on board for new interior crew. It's a great modern-day information guide with the added value of fun interactive elements.”

Bertrand Petyt, director of operations for a Monaco-based leisure company said, “I am always keen to utilise innovative, efficient and progressive tools to recruit, train and develop our on-board teams and ensure a superior service delivery to our guests and owners. The Crew Network’s interior service online training is one of the most advanced programs available in the yachting industry today. The friendly, interactive approach of this online training system ensures that crew members acquire a wealth of information as well as tips, systems, procedures, ideas to render their tasks more focused and efficient. Overall a fantastic training support tool, well needed in an industry where luxury service is a must.”

The new Interior Service e-learning course can be purchased via the Marlins online shop which links easily into the Marlins Learning Management System.  The benefit of having an online course is that crew can study at their convenience, anywhere in the world.

Louise Cailbourdin, crewing manager at The Crew Network explained, “From teaching experience, the best way to ensure information is assimilated is by giving relevant and essential facts using enjoyable and dynamic learning tools. This is exactly what our ‘Introduction to Interior Service’ course offers having synergized yachting expertise with the pedagogical skills of a leading maritime training provider.”

Kati Tarro, experienced stewardess commented, “I like the layout and organisation of the course, it is user-friendly and easy to follow. Clear objectives and a progression bar are really helpful for keeping track. I do think this course is beneficial for new stewardesses entering the industry.”
