Kind Words from Students

Here is what some students had to say about the course...

Nothing short of amazing!

Alexia, Junior Stewardess

I signed up prior to commencing my first season and have found it nothing short of amazing so far! It is very thorough I’m learning lots! I can’t wait to put it to use - thanks TYSA for creating the course!


Sam, Junior Stewardess

I was so nervous about starting my first job, but the Junior Stew Housekeeping course was a game-changer for me! The tips and techniques I learned gave me the confidence to handle everything from cleaning to laundry. The practical advice on setting up and maintaining guest cabins was absolutely brilliant and invaluable. Now, I feel totally prepared and excited to start my yachting career. I can't recommend this course enough!

Housekeeping is the biggest part of the Stewardess role...

Housekeeping might not be the most glamorous part of the job, but it's the biggest part of the Stewardess role, absolutely crucial and the first thing you’ll need to learn. A clean, well-organized yacht makes a huge difference to your guests' experience. From tidy cabins to fresh linens, your attention to detail is what makes a yacht feel like a luxury escape.

Here's why it matters:

  • First Impressions

    The first thing guests notice when they step onboard is the cleanliness. A spotless yacht sets the tone for their entire experience.

  • Guest Comfort

    Clean, well-maintained spaces make guests feel comfortable and cared for. Every detail, from perfectly made beds to fresh towels, contributes to the superyacht experience.

  • Professionalism

    High standards of cleanliness reflect the professionalism of the crew. Guests expect and appreciate meticulous attention to detail.

There's clean, and then there's superyacht clean...

We thought we knew how to clean things, until we started yachting - so trust us when we say, you’ll be blown away by the level of detail that goes into cleaning yachts. Once you’ve learned superyacht standard housekeeping, 5* hotels will seem like your University dorm room.

Your Questions Answered

  • Why train with TYSA?

    We're an IAMI GUEST Accredited training provider, but we also offer a range of other brilliant courses, both accredited and unaccredited, depending on what you're looking for. We want education to be available to everyone.

    Our team is incredibly experienced in the world of yachting and are all ex-crew, which means we know what we're talking about and have been where you are now.

  • How will this course help me?

    We know it can be incredibly overwhelming when you join your first yacht. It's not just a new job, but it's a whole new environment and a new world you go enter.

    This course will help you feel confident with your housekeeping and laundry skills and will give you a head start in your new role. You won't turn up to your first job and have no idea what you're doing. You'll know all of the basics, and then yacht will just refine your skills to suit their specific needs.

  • What if I have a question during the course?

    There are discussion boxes in each module, so if you have a question, just pop in the box and one of our trainers will contact you to answer it.

  • Do you offer refunds?

    No. Due to the online nature of our courses, there are no refunds.

  • For the parents reading this... yes, yachting is a real job - don't worry!

    Our parents all thought the same thing when we first started in the industry too, don't worry. It's a fantastic industry to be in and will be a brilliant adventure.

    The areas of a Stew (Steward/ess) are housekeeping, laundry and service. You're obviously looking for a course for your child to study to get those extra skills, so whether it's one of our courses or not, those are the things they'll want to learn.

    We recommend learning housekeeping & laundry first, as those are the departments' Stews generally start in. Once they've mastered those, then they may step into a more service-based role.

    Before your child joins their first permanent/ seasonal role, they should always receive an SEA Contract (Seafarers Employment Agreement). It's always good to have a read-through to know what their rights are, and to put your mind at ease.

  • What other courses do you have for Junior Stews?

    • Junior Stew: Service,which gives you the basics of service, including mixology, table settings, styles of service and more!

    • Junior Stew: Kickstart Your Yachting Career, which includes how to actually find your first job, CV writing, packing essentials and more!

    The above 2 courses, and this one, can be purchased in a money-saving bundle.

    We also have further courses, including:
    • Superyacht Wine Service
    • Service Fundamentals (great for after you've mastered the basics of service)
    • Luxury Tea Service
    • Foundations of Mixology

    However, we do recommend mastering the basics first and the things you actually need to know, then expanding on that knowledge.

    Our other courses are perfect for once you've gained experience.
