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 and Club Vounaki, Greece, 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 fulfil the assessment requirements of the ICC although those with limited or no experience can complete the 5 day ICC course at Vounaki which culminates in the assessment and exam.

  • Internationally recognised Certificate of Competence
  • Allows the holder to sail in countries where formal qualifications are compulsory
  • One Day Assessment and Exam
  • ICC recommended for sailing in Europe
  • ICC required for sailing in Croatia
  • Designed for sailors with previous experience
 
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 bases in Vounaki, Greece or 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.
