Bluewater to offer refit certification

ADVERTISEMENT

Bluewater Crew Training and The Triton have partnered to develop a seminar series for the 2018 Refit Show, Jan. 10-11, 2018, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The two-day “Introduction to Yacht Refitting for Yacht Managers, Captains and Crew” certification program is part of the Refit Show’s conference at the Broward County Convention Center. Industry professionals who complete six of the nine sessions offered will be awarded the new certification by Bluewater Crew Training.

The Bluewater certification seminars available at the Refit Show are:
Refit Yards
Legal and Liability Issues for Refits
Trends in Design
Basic Refit Preparation
Teamworking and Communication
Refit Case Studies
Department Responsibilities Before and During Refits
Creating a Refit Planning Guide
Conflict Resolution

A well-established crew training facility, Bluewater is known for its MCA Master, USCG and RYA Yachtmaster courses in Antibes, Fort Lauderdale and Palma. Bluewater faculty are developing the curriculum for the new certification to improve the skills of captains and crew during yard periods and to expand job prospects for those who complete the program. All of Bluewater’s courses are also open to Refit Show attendees who aren’t seeking certification, but who wish to develop their own refit management skills.

“Captains and crew are integral to the refit process in any shipyard,” said Jim Miller, Refit Show director. “Providing them with the communication, management and teamwork skills offered by Bluewater will improve their efficiency, making them more valuable to yacht owners and their representatives.”

The 2018 Refit Show will double the size of its exhibit hall and increase its seminar options from 15 to 24. In addition to Bluewater, other educational partners are contributing to the conference program, including American Boatbuilders and Repairers Association, American Boat & Yacht Council and The Landing School. The Refit Show is also adding more networking events and live product demonstrations.

Registration for the Refit Show opens in early November. To register or to learn more about the new certification program, other seminar options, and reduced seminar rates for captains and crew, visit www.refitshow.com.
