International Certificate of Competence

Learn the basics

International Certificate of Competence (ICC)

ICC 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 you 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).


DAY SKIPPER: People  wanting to do an ICC should complete Day Skipper and then apply for the conversion
