TBSA Accreditation : 

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. Call us at 65-96610264 or write in to to inquire.
