Training isn’t just what you achieve in a classroom or simulator.
STCW sets the minimum level but to improve on this, it is necessary for crew to continue to train and update themselves on the latest procedures and regulations while serving but in most situations, time doesn’t permit for this to happen.
DGM are the founding members of the Superyacht Training Group and through this we’ve brought together a number of likeminded companies who recognise the benefit of taking the training to the vessel. Aside from the significantly lower costs to the yacht, onboard training provides the opportunity for all crew to be trained in their environment, utilising their equipment, developing their procedures and working as a team.

From our perspective, we can provide on board training in firefighting, crisis management (MCA accredited), crowd control, navigation assessments and ECDIS risk assessments.
For vessels conducting maintenance or simply berthing within Genoa Italy at the Amico shipyard or in the Cartagena shipyard in Spain, these shipyards actively promote the training group as they recognise that to keep a yacht running effectively, the crew should be trained to the highest standard.
