ICC qualification

As an accredited RYA Training Centre, Oceanwest is able to offer the ICC assessment onboard our training yacht Samsara, a Beneteau Oceanis 41.1, or onboard your own yacht > 7m LWL

The ICC is often required in some European countries as proof of your competence to skipper a yacht.  Whether it be for a bare boat yacht charter or for your own vessel.

If you already have the RYA Dayskipper Practical qualification then you can apply for the ICC directly without any further assessment – click here for the ICC application form

If you do not have any formal qualifications then there are two ways to get the ICC: –

1. If you are an experienced yacht skipper with a good theory knowledge, then you can undertake the ICC assessment.  This is a 4 hour assessment of your theory knowledge and
