How It Works
Applying for ICC
If you already have an RYA sail or Power Certificate Of Competence obtained after undertaking an RYA course, you can apply to the RYA directly for an ICC for the vessels covered by your RYA certificate by simply filling in a special form.
If you do not have a RYA Certificate but feel you have relevant experience and skills, you can undertake a direct assessment at a training centre on the type of vessel you wish to obtain an ICC for. On successful completion the centre will fill in a special form and you can then apply to the RYA for your ICC.
