CST Experiences

The ICC (or to give it its full title International Certificate for Operators of Pleasure Craft) is a certificate which is intended to provide evidence of competence when requested by officials in foreign countries. It was historically known as the International Certificate of Competence.

To check your eligibility and for the most up to date information for the issuing of the ICC please visit the RYA website

The ICC can be included within the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course (please let us know prior to the course), or for more experienced powerboat drivers, without qualifications, we offer a direct assessment to provide the evidence of your competency needed to qualify for the ICC
