To obtain the International Boat License (ICC) you must prove your competence at driving a boat. If you have attended a qualifying RYA practical training course such as ICC Powerboat Under 10 Metre such as the RYA Powerboat level two, ICC powerboat under 10 meter. You can simply send a copy of your certificate when applying for your ICC Boat Licence. Alternatively, you can take a direct assessment at a RYA recognised training centre such as Boatability. But the most common route to achieving the ICC is by attending a RYA Powerboat Level 2 course or higher.
Essentially, the ICC boat license has many categories. When an ICC certificate is issued, only the categories for which competence has been proven will be validated. These categories are as follows:
- Power up to 10m ICC
- Power over 10m ICC (Or up to 24m/80 Tonnes)
- Sail up to 24m ICC
- Personal Watercraft (PWC)
- Coastal ICC
- Inland ICC
