All Yachtmaster certificates must be renewed every 5 years, and for this you must be in possession or justify the following aspects:
- The shipments of the last 5 years, dates and data of the companies for which you have worked. At least 150 days navigated should be justified.
- ISM Medical Certificate (see how to do it in the next entry).
- ID photo
- Course ‘Professional Practices & Responsibilities (PPR)’. It is a RYA course that can be done online and is priced at € 50.
- Original title that you want to renew.
** If you can not justify the required maritime service, but you can show that, for at least half of the five-year period, you have worked on tasks closely associated with the management and operation of one or more appropriate types of boats, you can renew your certificate. **
