Yacht workers must be seaworthy |

Yacht workers must be seaworthy | "Making a career out of the glamorous but challenging work of crewing a yacht requires serious training. This means navigating an ocean of certifications and regulations, and a substantial commitment of time and cash.

At a minimum, most crew working on motor yachts must complete a five-day basic safety course, commonly known as the STCW 95, which covers first aid, basic fire fighting and sea survival -- and costs more than $1,500."
