Prior to taking the course the candidate MUST have undertaken either 2 trips of 250 miles, or 1 trip of 500 miles in which some must travelled out of sight of land, and to cover those areas where this may be difficult, ie the Med or Caribbean, this out of sight of land requirement can be satisfied 20 miles or more from a shore line.
It is expected that a passage plan is made for that voyage together with examples of sextant work and compass errors. These would then be subsequently used in the course for review and debriefing purposes leading to improvements by the final theory exam.
This notice is to address those professional partner school who also teach ‘IYT Worldwide Yachtmaster’ courses. It has come to our attention that it has not been made perfectly clear to all Yachtmaster candidates that this certification is for recreational use only and may never be upgraded to a professional certificate.
Therefore, we require all candidates taking a recreational IYT Worldwide Yachtmaster Coastal, Offshore or Ocean course to complete the attached form for submission with your order. As you know, the requirements for professional certification are much more stringent and require audits by IYT Worldwide.
Just because an individual has undertaken a course based on the same syllabus using similar course materials does not give rights to professional certification. We trust that you are making this absolutely clear to all candidates who register for these recreational courses and that requiring each candidates’ signature will not be an issue.
