Prerequisites

Candidates should be 18 years of age or older. IYT Worldwide MOY Unlimited Programme is restricted to current holders of a valid IYT Worldwide MOY Limited Certificate. Note that we will also accept: MCA OOW Certificate, MCA stamped, Notice of Eligibility (NOE), MCA Master (Code Vessel) <200GT, Marshall Islands Master (STCW II/3) <350GT / Chief Mate (STCW II/3 <500GT), AMSA Master less than 35m Near Coastal (Master <35m NC) – previously referred to as Master 4. You must also have a current physical/medical, which must include eyesight and colour blindness check. Prior to taking the course the candidate MUST have undertaken either two trips of 250 miles, or one trip of 500 miles out of sight of land. To cover those areas where this may be difficult, i.e. the Mediterranean or Caribbean; this out of sight of land requirement can be satisfied 20 miles or more from a shore line. It is expected that a passage plan be made for that voyage, which would subsequently be used in the course for review and debriefing purposes leading to improvements by the final theory exam. It is strongly preferred that the passage(s) be carried out prior to the course being taken (but that it may be done after the course with extenuating circumstances).
