IYT vs ASA

So we're planning a trip to the Med. Any thoughts on which would be better for an ICC? I've been researching and i guess its not straightforward as to what we need - seems to vary from port to port even in the same country

IYT offers the ICC. ASA offers an IPC https://asa.com/international-proficiency-certificate/

If you are starting from scratch, take the ICC exam through an IYT school. It will take less time and probably cost less.

The ASA IPC requires that you have 101,103, 104 and be a member of ASA.

I would go the ASA for certain. IYT has many school in Russia where standards not good. I have friend who open IYT school with no inspections, trainings, nothing.

There are schools, including Russian ones, who falsely claim IYT recognition.

Re: IYT vs ASA

That is good information, thank you. Unfortunately many people in Russia try to get something without work for it anymore. Very sad as my country! but IYT not have any inspection in country and not even provide notes in Russian but still give certificate to those that pay
