RYA YM Exam FT Lauderdale area?

Hi there,

I am having trouble finding a school in the Ft. Lauderdale Miami area that does Yachtmaster Exam Prep and Exam for Coastal and Offshore. Does anyone have any places they could recommend?

Have you tried this place?

Re: RYA YM Exam FT Lauderdale area?

ICT and MPT in Fort Lauderdale are both very good. I have trained at both (MPT for Yachtmaster and ICT for OOW). As far as the yachtmaster is concerned, I have heard that ICT is better at preparing you for the test, but as mentioned earlier, I trained at MPT for this.
Whichever school you choose, you should know how to drive a twin-screw, no bowthruster like butter before going. They teach you everything else, but that needs to be a pre-requisite.
Hope that helps.
