International Yacht Training 

     

The Boat Shop Asia is an International Yacht Training (IYT) accredited training school in Singapore and Malaysia. The training academy is focused on powered craft training courses and offers growing numbers of IYT courses from our academy including VHF Maritime Radio Training Course and Small Powerboat & Rib Master Training (ICC10M).

IYT tickets (certificates) obtained by students will be issued International Certificate of Competency (ICC) which is adopted by certain United Nations resolutions and thereby recognized in a good number of countries around the world as a yacht/boat driving license in the country. Bareboat (self drive) charter boat companies from those countries also recognize the ICC certificates and allow holders to charter their boats on a bareboat basis. This means that your IYT ticket (certificate) is now an internationally recognized boat driving license.

 

There are 3 types of package courses for International Yacht Training (IYT). 

I) Basic Course - International Yacht Training (IYT)

The Basic Course package is for learners who have obtained their Powered Pleasure Craft Driving License (PPCDL) and completed their Basic Competency Course (BCC). Learners will be awarded with the following certification upon course completion/passing the assessment.
