The Advanced Course

IYT International Bareboat Skipper Certification 

Plus IYT VHF Radio Operator's Certification

The IYT International Bareboat Skipper Certification is a 10 day course.  The IYT VHF Radio Operator's Certification is included at no additional cost.

The syllabus of this course is set to give you a broad range of knowledge required to take command of a sail or power yacht of up to 78 feet / 24 metres, on your own.  It covers all the subjects required to prepare the boat, plan the passage, instruct the crew and command the vessel at sea.

The Bareboat syllabus separates theory and practical instruction and subjects covered in theory are then put into practice in the practical session on the SailQuest training yacht.

The recommended minimum age to obtain this certification is 18.

Obtaining this certificate through an IYT partner school who has been approved by IYT to offer the “International Certificate of Competency” to their candidates automatically qualifies for an ICC which is required to charter a vessel in most European countries.

Prerequisites

Individuals must be physically fit and minimum age is 18 years old.
