Service Description

The theory portion of the MOY 200T is a 6 day classroom course, consisting of both assessment papers and written examinations. Prior study and practical experience is required before the start of the test (listed below). Students shouldn’t expect to learn everything in one week without prior study. Minimum entry requirements: - One must hold or obtain a Marine Communications VHF-SRC Radio Operators certificate. - One must hold or obtain all STCW’10 certificates. STCW certificates must be valid (not expired). - Candidates must provide documented evidence of boating experience as stated below: - Logged 50 days on board a yacht at sea as an active crew member on watch. For the purpose of this requirement, a day is defined as a period of 24 consecutive hours. The term “at sea” is defined as being on a vessel outside of any harbor – natural or artificial – in which a cruising yacht could secure or anchor for a prolonged period of time. - Logged 3,000 miles in a yacht while cruising at sea (power or sail). This must be on genuine cruises or passages, not short day trips. The candidate must have considerable time of actual vessel handling. Thirty hours on watch at night underway as an active member of a yacht’s crew. - A current medical fitness examination and a color blindness eyesight examination, which allows the participant to safely perform the relevant duties on a yacht. Medical/eyesight examinations are valid for a period of two years. IYT will also accept military letters stating service days for sea time, however, each will be reviewed to ensure they have sufficient experience for the level of certificate they are requesting. Please Note: A candidate may take both endorsements, however, it is highly recommended that he or she have some hands-on practical experience and sea time on both power and sailing vessels before attempting the exam. The practical exam is not the forum for learning basic skills. Candidates may sit the shore-based course prior to having all the above requirements. Verification of the above yachting experience must be original and signed by the skipper of the yacht in which the candidate was sailing. Candidates claiming sea time during times when they were acting as skipper may sign their own entries but independent verification may be required.
