The International Crew and Marine Communications Master VHF SRC Courses are pre-requisite courses for the IYT International Flotilla-Bareboat Skipper Course, therefore, we highly recommend you take these IYT E-Learning courses prior to entering this course.
To obtain a final IYT International Flotilla or Bareboat Skipper Certificate of Competency you will be required to complete this online theory course and proceed to an IYT Partner school to take the practical portion of the course and a final practical exam.The "depth of knowledge" required for the theory portion of the International Flotilla Skipper course is the same as required for the International Bareboat Skipper course. However, the International Flotilla Skipper qualification is a great "stepping stone" to safely acquiring the 200 miles and 10 days at sea as required to progress to the IYT "International Bareboat Skipper" qualification. You will need to provide proof of prior qualifications and seatime to the school you choose for practical training in order to determine which certificate you are entitled to obtain.
*By successfully completing the IYT Flotilla-Bareboat Skipper E-Learning and practical courses you may also be eligible to gain the IYT ICC 24 Meter Certificate which is required in many European countries. This provided that the school where you have completed the training is approved to offer the ICC certificate to their candidates. Please see this link for more information.
