Ocean International Training Academy (OITA) is an online school founded by Hannah Ferrier and Anastasia Surmava, former cast members of the reality show Bravo Under the Mediterranean Bridge. The aim of the school is to help those looking for a career aboard yachts for the very first time.
OITA offers specific indoor and deck courses, with five modules each. These modules cover everything that will help new crews feel confident when they step onto their first yacht. The training includes video calls with owners and industry professionals to help answer any questions interns may have along the way.
The deck mods were created by Chief Officer Wesley Walton, also a former actor in Under the Mediterranean Bridge, and include: introduction and definitions, basic principles of navigation, seamanship and meteorology, safety and security, and maintenance and operation of the bridge.
