IYT has developed a modular format in maritime training to offer a series of recreational nautical courses that are accepted by major national registries and governments. We refer to this series of courses as the “International Boating & Sailing Passport.” This has enabled us to successfully establish a network of partner schools offering IYT courses worldwide and has been enthusiastically embraced by a growing number of schools, countries and administrations. Candidates have the convenience of full-time, evening or weekend participation coupled with the ability to choose a convenient location.

Our certificates are accepted by major yacht charter companies and many insurance companies offer discounted premiums to those who hold IYT qualifications. It is important to understand that an IYT certificate is a qualification that can be used globally. Unlike other training organisations, IYT insists on an understanding of IALA regulations in areas A & B, weather systems and tidal calculations in the north & southern hemispheres.
