The ICC assessment

  • On your arrival, you will be welcomed by one of our RYA-qualified instructors. Once the necessary paperwork is done, our instructor will guide you to the training boat of our school which is going to be used for the assessment. You will have a proper handover and you will have enough time to familiarise yourself with the boat and her equipment before the assessment.
  • The assessor will be one of our RYA-qualified instructors, he/she will brief you about the assessment and he/she will make sure that the whole procedure will be pleasantly conducted in a friendly environment. The assessment usually starts with the theory aspects followed by the practical assessment.. The minimum duration is 4 hours and is conducted at our base in Lygia.

Before booking your assessment

  • It is important to note that this ICC assessment is not a substitute for taking a theory and practical course. It is not a course and you will be assessed on your knowledge, understanding, and handling skills.
  • If your handling and navigation skills do not reach the standard required to be issued an ICC your assessor will not be able to sign your ICC application form. If you are in any doubt you should consider taking the RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship Theory and RYA Powerboat Level 2 course instead.
  • An RYA center is unable to physically present you with the ICC certificate. Upon successful completion of the assessment, the assessor will sign the ICC form, which then needs to be sent to the RYA which is the only governing body in the U.K. that can issue the certificate. The turnaround is roughly 2 weeks. You are not legally qualified until you have the physical ICC on hand.
