International Yacht Training Worldwide

E-Learning

IYT ElearningIYT now offers flexible online boating courses & preparation courses

  • You choose where and when you study.
  • Progress at a pace that suits you.
  • Choose an IYT partner school to help you put it all into practice.

We know that a “one size fits all” approach to learning doesn’t work for everyone. With online courses your learning can take place when and where it suits your schedule.

This approach may be particularly useful for people looking to prepare for an ICC online.

Finally a word on safety.  For people to be safe they need a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical skills. This is why we insist that students demonstrate their skills on the water before being awarded an IYT certificate.  We have a network of schools and instructors globally where the practical component may be undertaken. 

IYT E-Learning Courses

Presently we have online preparation courses to support our most popular courses and we continue to improve existing courses and add new courses.

Marine Communications Master – VHF Short Range Certificate
