Applicants for the UK ICC issued by the RYA who do not already hold an eligible RYA or MCA certificate, but already have the required level of competence can take the ICC Assessment to demonstrate their competence.
The syllabus for the ICC assessment is detailed on the ICC application form. Candidates can also purchase the RYA ICC Handbook to guide them through the requirements.
N.B. The ICC assessment is not applicable to Personal Watercraft.
Arranging to take the assessment
The ICC assessment can be arranged through an RYA recognised training centre or an affiliated club authorised to carry out the assessment known as an ICC test centre. A convenient ICC test centre can be identified using the 'Where's my Nearest' search at the top of this page.
The training centre or club will, confirm your successful completion of the assessment by signing the relevant section of the ICC application form - there is no separate certificate.
Send your signed application form together with the other items required for your application or renewal to the RYA Certification Department.
