International Certificate of Competence (ICC) and CEVNI Examination

To qualify to hold the International Certificate of Competence (ICC) you must be able to demonstrate that you have the practical skills to handle a boat on inland waterways and pass the theory CEVNI examination.  The practical skills are achieved through completing a relevant training course such as the RYA inland waterways helmsman training course.

Our residential Barging Experience is immersive training including the RYA inland waterways helmsman course and the CEVNI examination.  The full syllabus is included on both the two and three day options, the latter gives more opportunity to practice and refine your skills.  Our training courses provide a safe, practical learning environment to ensure all practical components of the ICC requirements are covered and ongoing assessment throughout your training will ensure you meet the necessary competence level to qualify for an ICC.  Holders of the RYA inland waterways Helmsman certificate and CEVNI pass certificate are eligible for the ICC without further assessment.

Bargecraft do not offer ICC assessments only.

If you consider your inland waterways boating experience is such that an ICC assessment only route is all you need, then please refer to the RYA website which provides a list of training centres who offer this option.
