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)
(Best way to obtain by undertaking the 2 day RYA National Powerboat Level 2 Certification)
RYA Level 2 National Powerboat Course
Power over 10m up to 24m/80Tonnes ICC (Coastal or Inland)
(Training needs to be conducted onboard a vessel over 10m)
Personal Watercraft (PWC)

We can also offer the CEVNI endorsement to the ICC, which is essential if you wish to travel the inland waterways.
