The IYT Standards

IYT Worldwide offers yacht training for powerboat and sailing vessels around the world. We have grown to become the International standard in maritime certification.

IYT has developed a modular format in maritime training. We offer a series of recreational nautical courses that are acceptable by major national registries and governments. We refer to our recreational series of courses as the "International Boating & Sailing Passport".


This idea has enabled us to successfully establish a network of partner schools offering IYT courses worldwide. The model has been enthusiastically embraced by a growing number of colleges, training establishments, countries and administrations.


Training Designed for You

IYT Worldwide courses are designed in a modular format. This allows the student the convenience of full time, evening or weekend participation. This is coupled with the ability to choose a convenient location for your practical exams at one of our IYT Schools.
