The Cocktail Guru team members, founder and creator Jonathan Pogash, and his father, Jeffrey Pogash, have teamed up with the PYA (Professional Yachting Association) and have become certified instructors to Yacht Crew in the following subjects:
- Intermediate Spirits & Cocktails
- Intermediate Wine Studies
- Advanced Spirits & Cocktails
- Advanced Wine Studies
A well-trained and well-versed crew, along with the establishment of standards of services in the yachting industry, is of the utmost importance in this day and age.
Jonathan and Jeffrey offer in-classroom sessions on a regular basis in Ft. Lauderdale, FL (at MPT – Maritime Professional Training) and Newport, RI. On-board trainings in those cities are also available. Our Florida courses are assisted by Ms. Laura Moore, extraordinary Florida-based Mixologist and Cocktail Guru team-member.
Please visit MPT USA’s website for our latest Florida-based courses.
If you and your crew happen to be in another city other than the ones mentioned above, please email us and we will try our best to accommodate your training requests. We are mobile!
