International Certificate of Competence (ICC) – For Sail or Power

The ICC is a useful certificate to have as most European countries, including Turkey and Greece, require you to hold a certificate of competence when chartering a yacht or operating your own vessel.   The ICC will generally be accepted where proof of competence is required.

Getting your ICC can be quick and simple and will allow you to enjoy the freedom of yachting or power boating in the beautiful waters of the Mediterranean. So, if you are planning to sail or cruise within Europe and the Mediterranean it is a good idea for skippers to hold the International Certificate of Competence (ICC).

Holders of RYA Power Level 2 Certificates or RYA Day Skipper Practical Certificates can already apply to the RYA for an ICC. If you do not hold any of these certificates then you can take a direct practical assessment. SunSea Yachting is an ICC test centre for Sail and Power and can provide its clients with the assessment which is part theory and part practical. The test lasts approximately half a day to a day and can be taken on your own boat or one provided by us.

The eligibility rules can be quite complicated so please contact us to discuss your requirements, or click on the link below.
