"If you’re planning to charter or acquire a boat in the Mediterranean, certification demonstrating your experience and competence is essential. Many charter companies require an International Certificate of Competence (IYT ICC), which confirms that your skills have been assessed and your experience approved. As a registered International Yacht Training facility, Challenge Sailing School ensures you meet these requirements.

 

To qualify, you need to have sailed a minimum of 200 nautical miles and spent 10 days at sea (not overnight). Additionally, charter companies often require proof of training in VHF radio use and basic Coastal Navigation education before entrusting you with their vessels. The IYT ICC certification is issued upon successful completion of both Basic and Intermediate Cruising courses.

Our courses primarily involve online theory, allowing you to learn at your own pace from the comfort of home before undertaking practical assessments on the water. Upon expressing interest in obtaining the IYT ICC, you'll receive a detailed information package outlining specific requirements.

 

Here's how it works:

  • Basic Level 1 - BEGINNER  (5 days event): $2200 + GST
    • Deposit: $1000 + GST, with the balance of $1200 + GST payable 30 days before the course begins.
  • Basic Level 2 - INTERMEDIARY (3 days event): $1400 + GST
    • Deposit: $1000 + GST, with the balance of $400 + GST payable 30 days before the course begins.

 

Requirements: Minimum 5 years of sailing experience or 200 nautical miles.

 

Please note: The deposit secures your place in the course, with the balance due 30 days before the course commencement date.
