Today we celebrate our new partnership with UKSA. UKSA is a national maritime charity based on the Isle of Wight, offering accessible maritime training, enhancing life skills and increasing employment opportunities in the sector.
The charity is one of the UK’s leading maritime training providers, offering a wide range of courses, including Superyacht Cadetship, Superyacht Crew Training, Superyacht Hospitality Training, and Professional Yachtmaster Offshore and more!
Like CrewPass’ other partners in the industry, UKSA saw the significance of pre-screening crew for the safety of individuals within the yachting industry. With UKSA’s support, CrewPass aims to make background checking an industry standard.
"34% of [UKSA's] graduates went into the superyacht industry"
Both companies strive to make the journey toward employment straightforward by providing crew with the tools they need to succeed.
UKSA cadets can sign up with CrewPass and undergo a comprehensive criminal record check and ID verification check so that by the time they finish their course, they will be fully ready to join the industry. Not only is this convenient for vessels, agencies and management companies, but this collaboration is also directly worthwhile for crew.
"879 students completed MCA courses"
CrewPass removes the time spent screening every crew member coming through their systems, and crew do not have to undergo multiple checks for each company. No matter where you are in the world, CrewPass will be able to undergo checks for you.
If you are looking to do yacht training in the UK, we highly recommend you use UKSA as your training provider! If you are a UKSA cadet or applying to join UKSA, make sure you look out for UKSA’s unique promotional code to get CrewPass’ subscription at a discounted price.
