Irish Sailing National Powerboat Certificate

The Irish Sailing National Powerboat Certificate is a 2 day course covering the skills and knowledge required to safely skipper a powerboat keeping yourself and your crew safe while afloat. This is considered the 'Driving Licence' for Boats in Ireland. 

The National Powerboat Certificate allows you to apply for the 'International Certificate of Competency' (ICC). The aim of the ICC is to provide boat owners and people wishing to charter boats abroad with an internationally recognised document certifying their competence to skipper a boat for recreational use.

The National Powerboat Certificate also allows you to apply for the 'Commercial Endorsement'. The Commercial Endorsement qualifies you to act as master or crew on vessels holding Passenger Boat licences as required by the Department of Transport. 

We offer a Direct Assessment option for the National Powerboat Certificate for individuals who are sufficiently experienced, skilled and have the required knowledge in all areas of the syllabus. Contact us to discuss this option further if you think it may apply to you.
