Question:
I am leaving school and have not achieved the exam grades I expected.
Answer:

Your best way forward is to get practical experience on yachts and learn on the job. Ideally you will have transferable skills from school (woodwork, metalwork or similar). Your first step is to get a position on a yacht to achieve a minimum of one month’s service as a yacht engineer. This will qualify you to attend a Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) recognised training provider and obtain an Approved Engine Course (AEC) Certificate. Warsash Superyacht Academy is in partnership with yacht recruitment agencies that can assist in this process.
