They visit the world’s most beautiful destinations that most others merely dream of, and do so in the company of fun-loving people. Let us guide you in a career in this magnificent industry.

Why Choose IYT?

IYT is the most internationally accredited global leader and trusted standard of excellence in Yacht Training, Maritime Certification, Safety, Knowledge & Sailing Adventures. IYT operates more boating and sailing courses with more government approvals through more sailing schools, in more countries and in more languages than any other boating or sailing organization in the world. Its founders represent 40 years of industry leadership and experience. 24 jurisdictions worldwide and a growing number of maritime associations recognize IYT certification. Over 250 schools in 56 countries (as of March 2017) have adopted the IYT curriculum.

Course Fees

Please note that IYT does not dictate what individual schools charge for training or examinations and has no involvement with financial transactions between schools and students.

Logging Sea Time & Training

It is important for mariners to keep a record of sea time.  IYT offers an “International Boating & Sailing Passport” which has space in the back pages to enter sea time.  It is a good idea to have sea time logged as proof is required before entering into some IYT courses and receiving final certification. 

This booklet is also used to track training as a candidate progresses through the IYT modular training program.  When a module has been completed, the school principal will sign the page.  At the end of a “course” which is made up of “modules” the school principal will apply a gold seal.  For example, a candidate can take modules 1-5 in Turkey and modules 6-11 in Thailand which completes all training for the IYT “International Crew Certificate”. 

To obtain this booklet contact the school where you may plan to train or any of our recreational partner schools as we do not sell these direct to students.  See this page of our website for details about the modular training programme.
