ICC (International Certificate of Competence)
ICC (International Certificate of Competence) is a requirement for anyone who wishes to charter outside the UK.
If you are planning to sail or cruise within Europe and the Mediterranean, the RYA recommends the skipper to hold the International Certificate of Competence (ICC).
ICC (International Certificate of Competence) assessment weekends are run throughout the year. If you already hold the RYA Day Skipper practical course certificate can apply to the RYA for an ICC without further assessment.
If you are intending to take a boat through the European Inland Waterways system, i.e. canals, rivers, lakes etc. applicants must have passed a test called the CEVNI (European Inland Waterways Regulations).
All of our courses allow for up to four students to be on board to ensure you receive a high level of support and tuition. Our courses also include moorings, fuel, catering including the first evening plus loan of wet weather clothing.
For the duration of this course, your accommodation overnight will be onboard the yacht including the Skipper.
