The PYA hosts various educational and informative events during the course of the year, providing the latest information and addressing the hottest topics.
The Sea Changes Forum at the Monaco Yacht Show is always a huge success with Captains, crew and Shorebased professionals. Key yachting experts and influencers come together to bring us up to date with all the latest changes in certification, regulation and training. Speakers usually include experts from the MCA, RYA and PYA as well as training providers. This is where you need to be for first hand, up-to-date information affecting every aspect of the industry, now and going forward.
Our global program of GUEST Awareness Days bring together charter brokers, yacht managers, recruiters as well as crew to highlight the importance of excellent service and adequate training in the interior department on board. Showcasing the skills that can be expected to be learnt as part of the PYA GUEST Program, these interactive and informative days are always extremely well-received across the board.
At the Monaco Yacht Show we also run a series of Continuing Professional Development workshops for all departments of crew, enabling attendees to learn new skills or develop their knowledge for free.
The PYA has teamed up with ACREW, who also run Continuing Professional Development Events throughout the year. The PYA now endorses some of the content on offer, meaning that the Crew can have their attendance at these events stamped into their PYA Crew Work Book, which can be shown to employers as evidence of them having taken the time to invest in their own professional development.
