The RYA course is not the qualification, it is a course if the course is not completed then a MCA written exam is also required
The oral exam is independently examined by a MCA examiner who grills (normally ) you for 1 1/2 hours on an ocean passage which must be as skipper
or 1st mate. 2500 NM must have already been documents and signed off on the YM offshore and an ocean passage of over 600 NM as a pre exam requirement.
Can I ask if the IYT YM has the same pre course requirements in the limited master?
Note there is NO. RYA YM offshore course. There is a syllabus, the exam is not dependant upon any specific previous knowledge, only sea time.
The YM , was originally developed by the RYA in 1971 based on the report of an internal panel of experts. To the chagrin of the RYA they neglected to trademark the name !
Training under the YM scheme in one form or another, is carried out in 44 countries worldwide. Not to mention multiple " copies" of the YM course in other countries
The ocean course was completely overhauled a few years ago to move it from being a completely celestial orientated to more a management of ocean voyages
It is independently examined , in some much, that the examiner holds the interview had no instruction part to play
It, the RYA YM offshore is the pre-eminent leisure certification
Over 2,200 RYA recognised training centres in more than 44 countries.
22,000 RYA instructors across the world.
15,000 professionals working on commercial
vessels using RYA Certificates of Competence.
155,000 people completing RYA courses every year.
Over 300,000 expert RYA publications are added each year to the personal libraries of recreational and professional boaters.
Over 100 professional and recreational courses on the water
, in the classroom and online. "
