Recognition fees

 

RGN A7

Application fees are payable at the time of submitting an application for recognition. Recognition for the 2021/22 season will run from 1 February 2021 to 31 March 2022. Thereafter the recognition year will run from 1 April to 31 March each year. Pro forma invoices for the annual fees will be sent in February with VAT invoices to be sent at the beginning of April.

A7.1 Inspectors' costs

Recognised Training Centres (RTCs) that are subject to the non-UK recognition fee will, in addition to the annual recognition fee, provide or cover the cost of the inspector's international travel, accommodation and subsistence required for the centre’s inspection. 

Where extensive travel is required, additional payment to cover travel days may be charged by prior agreement.

Where an area has multiple RTCs, the inspector will make every effort to co-ordinate inspections to enable the costs to be shared between the RTCs concerned. Any RTC that cannot be inspected as part of a co-ordinated visit of multiple centres must cover the cost of their own inspection as above.

A7.2 Affiliated clubs

RYA affiliated clubs operating from one site in the UK pay a fee for the initial centre application/inspection, but thereafter the annual recognition fee is discounted 100% for practical or shorebased courses, provided that RYA training is restricted to their members or members of other RYA affiliated clubs. This exemption is in place to assist clubs in attracting and keeping members.

An annual inspection fee will be payable by RYA affiliated clubs wishing to operate from more than one site, or outside the UK.

Annual fees for online and distance learning courses, and inspection fees for marine radio courses still apply.

Should the club cease to pay the annual RYA affiliation fee or wish to offer training to non-members, the club will inform RYA Training and become subject to the annual recognition fee.
