RYA UNCOVER FRAUD IN BALEARIC ISLANDS
A company trading as 'Pronautica', are advertising RYA qualifications and
issuing counterfeit RYA certificates. The RYA would like it known that
this is illegal and 'Pronautica' are in no way recognised by the RYA to
carry instruction or issue any of its certificates.
RYA's James Stevens, head of training, highlighted the importance the RYA
attaches to policing its recognition and standards when he commented, "The
recognition of an RYA training qualification is international. We take any
infringement or fraudulent activity very seriously. If anyone pays good
money to 'Pronautica' for an RYA certificate, it will not be worth the
paper it is written on!"
A full list of all RYA recognised centres is available from the RYA
website: www.rya.org.uk and the RYA urges anyone to check out recognition
before booking a course.
