SailQuest International Yachting Certificates


Depending on where you plan to operate, own or charter a power or sailing yacht, there may be local regulations concerning the qualifications of the captain and/or crew of the vessel. The SailQuest Sailing School is certified to issue 3 types of internationally recognized maritime certificates. 

1.) International Yacht Training (IYT) Certificates

Students who successfully complete the SailQuest 5/10 Day IYT Crew/Skipper's Course will receive the IYT Bareboat Skipper's certificate with a power or sail endorsement. This certificate is recognized by yacht charter and insurance companies and many governments around the world as a certificate of excellence in yachting.

We also offer other IYT certificates, like the IYT International Crew Certificate the IYT VHF Radio Operator certificate.

2.) The International Certificate of Competency (ICC)

The ICC is a certified level of competency required when operating a pleasure craft in most European Coastal or Inland waterways. SailQuest Sailing School, via IYT Worldwide, has been authorized to issue ICC's to any qualified applicants on their behalf.

SailQuest Sailing School will process students ICC application upon successful completion of the SailQuest 10 Day IYT Crew/Skipper's course.

3.) NauticEd Online Sailing Course Verified Proficiency Endorsements

The NauticEd Online Sailing Theory courses are an excellent way to get started in developing a solid knowledge of yachting basics. SailQuest recommends this online program to students as a way to prepare for the 10 Day IYT Crew/Skipper's Course. You may wish to complete the NauticEd Skipper, Charter Master or Captain Rank course bundle before attending SailQuest classes.

SailQuest Update - Response to Corona Virus/COVID-19

As I am sure you are aware, the Corona Virus/COVID-19 is creating international travel issues. At this time, however, it is business as usual at SailQuest Sailing School and all scheduled course dates and sailing events are still running as scheduled. It is a great time of year for sailing here in the Gulf of Thailand!

To keep updated on the situation in Thailand and restrictions regarding incoming visitors,  see the Thailand Department of Disease Control website. Travelers should also be aware of any warnings or restrictions that may be posted in the country you will return to following your SailQuest dates.

This situation will certainly effect some who have already booked course or event dates or those who may be thinking of doing so. The SailQuest refund and re-schedule policy remains the same as always. If for any reason you need to cancel  your booking, we will issue a full refund of your booking deposit or full payment, minus any bank transfer fees. Or we can hold your payment and you can re-schedule to more convenient dates as your schedule allows.

We are also implementing a daily temperature check policy for instructors and students and encouraging continued good hygiene practices for all. Anyone who is not feeling well or showing symptoms… please stay home!

These are tough times for travelers and business owners alike, but we are all trying to make the best of it.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Good health and Happy Sailing!
