SIA / IYT Yacht Courses
Sail in Asia Training Materials are available for courses when you sign up for one. These materials have been audited as MCA compliant, for IYT courses.The handbooks below are designed by SIA and cover many of the IYT courses that are certified by IYT. The handbooks supplement the IYT text books supplied by IYT. The course materials are owned by Sail In Asia and have been evolved as a direct result of teaching students who were trying to master the skills and knowledge required to pass IYT courses. Sail in Asia Training materials are reviewed and added to every year.
Sail in Asia also produce lecturing materials for Instructor Trainees, Powerpoint presentations, Exercises for individual courses and Evaluation materials to ensure their students competences are rigorously measured and recorded.
IYT have also collaborated with Sail in Asia to allow them to produce the training materials for their International Crew, Watch Keeper, Bareboat Skipper and Yacht Master courses. Now SIA have designed the Keelboat Crew, Navigator and Skipper Courses for the modern keelboat.
SIA, Zero to Hero courses are a means of achieving IYT Bareboat Skipper, VHF certification and the early marine training such as International Crew certification in a 14 day period.
The IYT Yacht Master Coastal and Offshore is a course addressed to candidates that already have a good understanding of sailing/boat handling, nautical terminology and safety at sea and wish to concentrate on gaining better skills and understanding of marine topics.
