International Crew Training gets new CEO

ADVERTISEMENT

Capt. Mike French has stepped down as CEO of the maritime school ICT, International Crew Training, and returned to work on yachts.

Jay Lasner, the longtime owner of ICT and its predecessor company, has taken over as CEO.

Lasner is an anesthesiologist and was a U.S. Navy officer and flight surgeon. He invested in the school in the early 1990s to support the safety of yacht crew through education and training.

“As a physician, I know what it means to be an expert and onboard certified,” Lasner said. “I get it. And it’s not just training, it’s practical education.”

Lasner no longer practices medicine full time and will actively run the company with Brian Luke, COO of the company.

The school is adding new courses this fall, most notably the newly mandated MCA Human Elements of Leadership and Management (HELM) (both operational and management levels) and Efficient Deck Hand (EDH) courses.

It will also host one-on-one and group oral prep courses for MCA exams again in October as well as an MCA engineering prep course.

“We thank Mike for his years of service and contributions at ICT,” Lasner said. “We wish him the very best in his future endeavors, including something he was looking forward to, his upcoming return to sea.”
