Level 1 Sailing Courses - International Certificate of Competence Course

Overview

The International Certificate of Competence (ICC) is a test of competence and provides the student with an internationally recognised qualification. 

The ICC, or higher certification, is required in Croatia and other countries, specifically in Europe, where governments are increasingly looking for recognised certificates to confirm the student reaches an internationally agreed level of competence. 

At Port Solent in the UK, students are assessed for the ICC. The purpose is to provide documentary assurance from one government to another that the holder meets an agreed level of competence.

Yachtsmen who have attended an RYA practical training course can be expected fulfill the assessment requirements of the ICC.

Why take this course with Sunsail ?

The Sunsail International Certificate of Competence course is an internationally recognized certificate, which enables the holder to sail in countries where formal qualifications are compulsory.

As many countries now require visiting yachtsmen to hold formal qualifications, the ICC provides documentary assurance from one government to another that the holder meets an agreed level of competence. The ICC is a test of competence, it is not a qualification.

If you have attended an RYA practical training course, presenting your certificate with your ICC application form may be sufficient, or you can take the one day exam from our base in Port Solent, UK.

This certificate can only be obtained by UK residents and proof of your residential address will be required. The one-day exam will test you on basic boat handling, mooring skills and your knowledge of yacht preparation and rules of the road.
