Membership & Audit Fees
New schools joining IYT pay an application fee ranging from $50 to $250. The size of the fee depends on the range of courses taught & types of vessels used. Those schools applying for Professional status have to be physically inspected prior to gaining approval to join IYT. The cost of the inspection must be paid prior to the initial visit. We try and keep these costs to a minimum. Annual membership dues range from $100 to $1,500 again depending on the range of courses delivered.
All schools need to have at least one registered instructor. Only registered instructors can deliver IYT courses. They may also order IYT certificates for the students they have trained successfully.
Instructors pay an initial processing fee of between $20 and $50. They also pay for their initial certificates which will include an instructor card and the appropriate underlying certificates of competency. Bundled pricing is applied so that typically an instructor would pay in the region of $200. This would also include their first year membership dues. Annuals dues are then required.
Course Costs & Certificates
The cost of courses and certificates is ranges between $15 for an entry level certificate to $400 for professional courses. Almost all certificates are photo based, credit card style and come with enhanced security features such as holograms and QR codes.
