International Yacht Skipper Agency
The International Yacht Skipper Agency was founded in 2019 to train sailing and powerboat skippers.
IYSA works in close collaboration with the Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure of the Republic of Croatia.
IYSA has extensive experience gained in the process of training skippers and captains of commercial and recreational vessels.
Our training standards comply with all international maritime safety requirements and COLREGs-72.
The main activity of our agency is the training of skippers of recreational sailing and motor boats.
Our instructors are well experienced in maritime navigation and undergo mandatory training in first aid and maritime rescue skills.
IYSA conducts obligatory accounting and registration of training courses for skippers and sailors.
After the completion of each course, theoretical and practical examinations of cadets are held, followed by registration in the IYSA system and the issuance of a certificate.
All IYSA certificates have a unique number and code for online verification. When checking the certificate, you can also check the skipper’s logbook.
Our main office is located in Omis, Croatia. We also have representative offices in other countries.
