IYT 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.

This is a FREE online ‘preparation’ theory course.


Students may study and obtain all the theoretical knowledge to competently operate a VHF/SRC Radio absolutely FREE.  

We hope students will choose to proceed to an IYT Partner School to complete the practical training which will require payment for the “theory completion certificate”.  This certificate must be presented to the school where you will prove competency by taking a practical examination.   After successful completion of the practical examination, you will be awarded a “Marine Communications Master – VHF Short Range Certificate of Competency” recognised by the Marshall Islands Shipping Registry.  

Please note that IYT does not dictate what the school will charge for their time and effort conducting practical examinations. 

For more details about the Marine Communications VHF/SRC course see details here.

Recreational
To date the following recreational courses are available in the IYT blended e-learning programme.

International Crew

This is a FREE online ‘preparation’ theory course, examination and course completion certificate.
Students may study and obtain all the theoretical knowledge to competently operate a VHF/SRC Radio absolutely FREE.  

After successfully completing the final online theory examination you will receive an online pdf “International Crew Theory Couse Completion Certificate”.  Please visit the IYT partner school most convenient to you to complete the practical training course.  On successful completion, the school will order your final “International Crew Certificate of Competence”.

The International Crew Course is a five-day course and is a level of competence that someone needs when acting as crew or watchkeeper of a small yacht in protected waters. The International Crew Course should be completed prior to taking the International Bareboat Skipper course unless one has trained and holds a certificate of equivalent competency from another training association.

There is no pre-requisite experience required to take the International Crew Course.  

For more details about the International Crew course see details here.

IYT E-LEARNING COURSES 

International Bareboat Skipper

This is a FREE online ‘preparation’ theory course, examination and course completion certificate.

After successfully completing the final online theory examination you will receive an online pdf “International Flotilla-Bareboat Skipper Theory Couse Completion Certificate”.  Please visit the IYT partner school most convenient to you to complete the practical training course for either International Flotilla Skipper or Bareboat Skipper.  Whether you receive Flotilla or Bareboat Skipper depends on your prior experience and seatime.  Upon successful completion, the school will then order your final certificate of competency for  “International Flotilla Skipper” or “International Bareboat Skipper”.

The “depth of knowledge” required for the theory portion of the International Flotilla Skipper course is the same as required for the International Bareboat Skipper course, however, the International Flotilla Skipper qualification is a great ”stepping stone” to safely acquiring the 200 miles and 10 days at sea as required to progress to the IYT “International Bareboat Skipper” qualification.
