An ICC is an Intermediate level certification which is required to skipper a bareboat charter in many European countries. It is issued through International Yacht Training. CENVI is an endorsement for inland waters in Europe.

See more information.

Wavelength Sailing School is an International Yacht Training member school and we can issue ICC and CENVI Certificates through IYT.  Course fees include texts exams and costs of certification. The card can processed and sent to you within a week.

More information is on the IYT website


The ICC challenge course includes practical on water assessment as well as a theory (classroom ashore) component which is tested in an exam.

The on-water assesment takes about 2 hours per person . We don’t have a lot of time for coaching so you need to be sailing at an intermediate level.

to prepare for the ashore component you will need to  home study, so why not get the theory portion completed over winter before you take the Practical?  We will send you home study materials and are avaiable by email to help you with anything you dont understand. The exam can be taken when you come to Kingston. If needed we will review the material before the exam.
