There are a few classifications(sail, power upto 10m, power upto 24m and PW) certs can also be endorsed coastal or inland.
Within the UK there are a handful of organisations who can hand out ICCs of which the RYA is the main body.Of the top of my head I think they are doing about 20K a year. Most RYA practical training centres are recognised to asses ICC in their given field ( ie sail/power/pw)
The ticket has no purpose or meaning within the British Isle but wil keep you legit when within the Baltic, Med, Atlantic Europe and inland waterways.
