The Crew Coach course accredited


France-based The Crew Coach has been awarded formal accreditation for its superyacht-specific online leadership training for senior crew.

Crew who complete the full online training including all modules and coursework can now apply for an internationally recognized Continuous Professional Development certificate from the UK’s Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM), giving this investment in their personal development value in the professional world beyond yachting. In addition to this, all learners receive free access to the ILM student resource library during their program, giving them a wealth of further invaluable resources and information.

The Crew Coach Leadership Advantage program curriculum builds on the core principles in the HELM leadership training.

Founded in 2009 by Alison Rentoul, The Crew Coach has also recently ended a three-year exclusive partnership with Camper & Nicholsons International and is once again available to work with any yachts and crew.

The company provides yachting career guidance and leadership training for individuals, and onboard team building, improving communication and performance boosting for entire crews. Services include full team professional performance reviews, psychometric testing for hiring, skills and strengths profiling, and leadership training for senior crew.

One thought on “The Crew Coach course accredited

  1. Ian Bone

    This is a positive and forward step in continuous professional development becoming the norm in the yachting industry particularly for Captains and senior crew.
    We need to keep continuing to work with external accrediting agencies (Universities, Institutes and Colleges) to strengthen the relationships and to ensure credibility for the programs being offered. This can only help with improving Captains leadership and people and relationship skills as well as future career options…Congratulations to the Crew Coach
