PYA-Accredited Training Providers

The PYA has accredited non-mandatory training in a selection of schools all over the world. In order to receive accredited status, the schools must have met the quality criteria assigned by the Professional Yachting Association. The training provider agrees to uphold these standards in training, with regular reviews and audits from the PYA.

The purpose of PYA accreditation is so that the crew member can ensure they are getting true value for their training investment.

The following schools have been accredited by the PYA for some, or all of their courses. You can see all training courses for yacht crew around the world at our training calendar here, which shows which ones have been accredited by the PYA.
