2018 Course Prices

From 01 January 2018, Bargecraft has added a French branch to the UK company. Therefore, and in order to meet our French tax obligations, we now structure our prices in Euros.

The prices for our courses excluding accommodation are:-

RYA Inland Waterways Helmsman's Course (IWHC) - 2 days *€910
RYA Inland Waterways Crewman's Course (IWCC) - 1 day€400
UK International Certificate of Competence assessment (ICC) - 1 day *€455

In the case of the ICC, if you would prefer to take your assessment on your own boat on the Canal du Midi or Canal du La Garonne we would be happy to come to you. We would simply have to add travelling (equivalent of 40p per mile) and any necessary accommodation expenses.  Our apologies but we no longer travel further afield.

* inclusive of CEVNI examination

VLUU L200  / Samsung L200
