I C C - International Certificate of Competence

In some European countries this qualification is a requirement before a UK flagged vessel may be skippered or chartered. It is not yet required in the UK.

Options of gaining a coastal I.C.C. (motor) are :-

- satisfactory completion of the Day Skipper or Coastal Skipper practical courses.

- practical assessment on your own boat or the school boat if the candidate is already up to the required standard.

- combination of theory and practical tuition as necessary.

Many candidates for assessment fail because they do not come prepared with the required level of underpinning shorebased knowledge. There is insufficient time for all of this to be covered on the practical courses where priority goes to boat handling skills and other practical aspects.

For those needing this pre-course knowledge building, the Day Skipper shorebased course is recommended. Coastwise is able to provide a cost-effective specific distance learning package.

There are two classes of ICC (motor) – up to 10 metres and up to 24 metres.
Coastwise is able to award the class of ICC for the size of boat on which the examination takes place. The syllabus is available on the RYA web site.

Cost of training/assessment is based on time taken and is as the practical rates listed for own boat or on the school boat as part of a course. Alternatively, the school boat is available for short term charter for training and/or the examination at £60 per hour (engines running) and £20 per hour (tied up). As a guide, a well prepared candidate requiring examination only should complete the examination in aprox 2hrs afloat & 1hr ashore.

ICC - C.E.V.N.I.
This is an additional shorebased assessment required when using European inland waterways abroad. It can best be described as the ”highway code” of the rivers and canals. The RYA can provide a useful booklet for the syllabus.

It may be included as part of a practical assessment at no extra charge or assessed on it’s own where cost will be based on time and travel.
