IYT Course Approvals

IYT Master of Yachts courses have been approved by the British Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) since 1998 for use on board all Red ensign registered Yachts up to 200 Gross Tons.

Although the courses were specifically designed for use on Red Ensign Yachts, they are now accepted by many other flag states because of their prestigious MCA recognition.


The Marshall Islands shipping registry has also accepted the IYT Master of Yachts certificates for us on board their yachts. The MCA and the Marshall Islands represent the two largest Yacht registries in the world.

It is imperative that holders of the IYT Master of Yachts certifications first check with the flag state that they wish to work in to ensure they accept the IYT Master of Yachts Certification.
