ICC (The International Certificate of Competence)

The International Certificate of Competence is issued in conformity with Resolution No. 40 of the Working Party on Inland Water Transport. The ICC is required by many European countries for the use of certain categories of pleasure boat. It is also useful in countries where compulsory certificates are required of nationals simply because officials expect to see such a certificate. You automatically qualify for your ICC on completion of the RYA powerboat level 1 and 2 course. To apply you will need a copy of the application form available from the RYA website at www.rya.org.uk. You will need a passport photo along with either your RYA membership number or your ICC fee and your Powerboat Level 1&2 Certificate.
