On 19th November, to coincide with the METSTRADE show in Amsterdam, the PYA will be hosting its second PYA GUEST Awareness Workshop at Miele Nederland B.V, De Limiet 2, 4131 NR Vianen, The Netherlands.

Three years ago, with the assistance of a large group of industry stakeholders, the PYA launched the GUEST (Guidelines for Unified Excellence in Service Training) initiative as a framework for improving standards of training for those working in the interior department of superyachts and, by doing so, enabling them to provide an enhanced level of service.

To date the PYA has accredited over 20 Training Schools, all around the world, to offer the GUEST training syllabus and these Training Schools have, so far, issued 3,759 certificates to crew who have successfully completed one or more modules of the training.

The Awareness Workshop is aimed at high-profile industry professionals, including senior crew, owner’s representatives, management personnel and those who deal with and supply the interior departments. It aims to inform the participants about the benefits of the GUEST Program as well as to demonstrate the level of training provided. In addition, there will be discussion of related issues and an opportunity for providing the feedback that is essential for the continuing development of this initiative.
