ICC CEVNI OVERVIEW:
Here in the UK, leisure skippers of craft less than 24m and/or 80GT are not required to hold a licence to go boating. However, Brits who wish to go boating in Europe (and beyond) will often find they are required to produce a Certificate of Competence.
The International Certificate of Competence (ICC) is accepted by most countries. There are two routes to obtaining an ICC (for coastal waters). If you are already competent we can arrange a half day or 1 day Direct Assessment. Alternatively if you take one of the following practical courses you will be elaibal for an ICC without any further assessmnet.
- Powerboat Level 2 (or higher level Powerboat Course) – allows ICC power (coastal up to 10m)
- Day Skipper Motor (or higher level motor cruising course) – includes ICC power (coastal any length)
- Day Skipper Sail (or higher level sail cruising course) – includes ICC sail (coastal)
- PWC Proficiency – includes ICC PWC (coastal)
If you take any of the above courses at a coastal centre, your ICC will automatically be endorsed “Coastal”. If you intend to operate within the inland waterways of Europe, you will require the additional inland “Code Européen des Voies de Navigation Intérieure” (CEVNI) endorsement as well. The ICC CEVNI test is a short multiple-choice test that can be taken either at our centre or online.
