Both principles, Terry Gilmore & Peter Vogel, are of the opinion that our industry requires a united approach following the PYA GUEST initiative and feel that its in the best interest for the industry that the quality of the training provided, both on board and ashore is professional and of equal quality.
This pioneering initiative gives the industry a strong interior training platform, which provides benefits for everyone involved.
Both Terry & Peter feel that it’s time to provide the type of training that supports the interior operation and motivate the individual interior crewmember to be the best they can be. Why be mediocre when you can be excellent!
ITA will be focusing on elementary & intermediate training and runs shoreside courses throughout the year in Antibes , France and the UK whilst IYS runs its Luxury Hospitality specialist courses in Amsterdam Intermediate and focuses on , Advanced & Management level.
Peter Vogel, Managing Director of IYS comments: "It feels great to work alongside Terry and the ITA whilst giving back to this great industry at the same time. We are both excited that we will be able to offer excellent options to individual crewmembers"
Both companies are specialised in training onboard and have developed effective programs supporting crew on the yachts from their clients. They will continue to bring their expertise and in the future support each other where possible.
Terry Gilmore, Managing Director of ITA comments: "Working together with Peter I am confident we are making a positive approach to improving the standards and professionalism of crew working in the interior of private and charter yachts globally. To train and provide the basis for sound progression from the outset of one’s career is essential to owners and fellow crew alike."
By working close together they share their combined expertise with the next generation. Terry is able to support his clients further by specialising in Interior and Chefs through his recruiting service at Abacus & March and Peter supports Captains and Interior HOD’s through the implementation of Interior Operating Structures.
Joey Meen, Training and Certification Director of the Professional Yachting Association (PYA), recently said: "It is a bold and inspiring step to have ITA and IYS collaborate. As approved, accredited PYA training providers offering the GUEST program they are making the owners experience their priority".
