International Yacht Training Worldwide is very proud to announce that non European citizens who wish to charter a yacht in European waters can now get an “International Certificate of Competency” (ICC) through IYT participating partner schools.  The approval to issue these certificates was awarded to the Company by the Irish Department of Transport of the Government of Ireland on Jan 21st 2011.

This is also a unique opportunity for past graduates of IYT Worldwide to automatically obtain an ICC based on their current IYT Worldwide qualifications.

The ICC complies with the Economic Commission for Europe, Resolution No.40 on International Certificates for Operators of Pleasure Craft.

 This certification allows the operator to command a pleasure craft up to 24 meters in length (78’) or 80 gross tons. This certification was previously only available (through IYT Worldwide) to Irish and U.K citizens.


For further information on how to obtain your ICC please contact

Good News. Its always been difficult for Americans to bareboat charter in Europe without an ICC. You should do a booming trade.
