Certificate Translations

As Yachtsmen travel further afield, the acceptance and knowledge of RYA certification by port officials is of greater importance. The ICC often assists, but the countries to which RYA certified skippers now venture far outstrip its scope.

We cannot make every country accept our qualifications, but the translations of the practical certificates below should make it easier for port officials to understand them and make an informed decision. By selecting the dot that corresponds with the country and the certificate or syllabus you require, download the relevant translations for the certificate you hold and take them with you.
