Hiring a boat abroad is a great way to have fun when you're on holiday! To do this you'll need the 'ICC'.

 

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.
