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.


The list of countries recognizing the ICC certificate as listed below:


If you would like to acquire the skills to drive a boat, IYT, with its numerous courses is the perfect platform for you to start your boating journey. If you already  have a PPCDL in Singapore or PCDC in Malaysia, we have conversion paths for you to acquire the IYT and ICC certificates.
