Interior Training Standards for crew

13 February 2019

The PYA sponsored GUEST training program developed over the last several years together with wider maritime hospitality training standards, has now successfully transferred  from the PYA to IAMI.  IAMI is the association of maritime training colleges and training providers for seafarers.


IAMI has formed a Maritime Hospitality sub group with its first meeting planned later this month in Southampton, UK.  Associate Membership of IAMI is now available to any training provider offering courses in hospitality training for interior crew.  This forum will consider the standards of training and development for all interior departments. IAMI is managing the GUEST interior training programme.

Joey Meen is the newly appointed Director of Interior Training at IAMI.
