International Certificate of Competence (ICC)

If you are looking to take your own or hire a boat abroad, many countries now insist on the ICC as a formal qualification for at least one person on board.

Essentially, the ICC Power license has 3 categories. When an ICC certificate is issued, only the categories for which competence has been proven will be validated. Categories are as follows: 

Power up to 10m ICC (Coastal or Inland)
