first step for anyone considering Yachting as a career or pastime.

give a basic understanding of the knowledge required to be an active crew member
on board a Yacht either power or sail.
International Watchkeeper/Flotilla Skipper Certificate (Modules 8-12) These theory
and practical modules are aimed at increasing a student’s nautical knowledge sufficiently
to be a watchkeeper on board a bareboat Yacht, or a flotilla skipper in fair weather,
during daylight hours within sight of land.

vacation. IYT will accept prior learning from other recognised Yachting establishments
