Statement van de RYA ivm AventuraPlus en de RYA Yachtmaster Offshore certificaten

Bericht van Richard Falk – Hoofd training en qualificaties van de Royal Yachting Association:

It has come to my attention that “Aventura Plus”, an organisation recently stripped of its RYA Training recognition status has published statements in the public domain suggesting that the RYA is not intending to carry on in the issuing of qualifications for use on small commercial vessels. This information is false.

The RYA has administered the RYA Yachtmaster Scheme since 1973 and continues to work closely with the MCA and under its authority delivers training and qualifications for use on board vessels in the commercial sector. RYA certificates of competence are enshrined in UK maritime regulations and there is no intention for this situation to change. There are more than 25,000 seafarers who utilise commercially endorsed RYA qualifications in a large number of countries around world.

Anyone with specific queries concerning the misinformation published by Aventura Plus is invited to contact the RYA Training Department  in the UK to speak with us directly regarding this issue.

  1. Op de site van Aventura wordt RYA nog steeds genoemd? Hoe kan dat?
