Welcome to CREW.ICT the recruitment and placement division of International Crew Training (ICT). Our goals are twofold: to provide our students with the best career choices and employment opportunities in the yachting sector, and to provide employers with trained candidates that we know will fit in and succeed.
As the July 1st deadline approaches we have been inundated with candidates wanting to complete their OOW and Master training and before July. For this reason we are planning to add additional courses leading up the orals in April and all the way through to the middle of June in order to cope with the demand.
Does your yacht operate as an RYA training centre? We have an RYA trainer coming to Fort Lauderdale in February. He is able to undertake vessel inspections and training. We aim to get enough yachts share the expenses of flying a trainer from Europe. Let us know if this works or if you would like us to coordinate an alternative time to complete your RYA training centre requirments.
