International Certificate of Competance (I.C.C)
Course Duration: Motor Cruising 5 days, Power (up to 10m) 3 days
Price on Application


The ICC may be issued by a government to its nationals and residents who are bound for the waters of foreign countries on vessels registered by that government. This means that a UK ICC allows UK Citizens and bonafide UK residents in UK registered pleasure craft (up to 24m in length) to visit the waters of foreign states that participate in Resolution 40, without the need to comply with those states' Cabotage laws, particularly their national certification requirements which in many cases are compulsory.

Some states may accept UKICC as an alternative to their national qualification on their nationally flagged vessels, but this should NEVER be assumed. The onus is on ICC holders to determine its acceptability by foreign states.

The ICC was never intended to be an alternative to individual national qualification requirements. The syllabus for the ICC test as follows: Safety prior to cast off. Depart from a pontoon. General manoevering. Steering, and turning in a confined space. Emergencies. Man overboard drills. Coming along side a windward bank or pontoon. Securing to a buoy, (if appropriate). High speed manoeuvres, (if appropriate).
