Icc

Is the RYA the only place to get one of these from? Or can they be sourced from somewhere else?

Hi Andy, I don't your reason for wanting this, but I have an RYA one for PB2 and tried to use it to hire a boat in France about ten years ago.
It was a waste of time, the proprietor didn't have a clue what they were.
He would only accept a French qualification.
Nick.

I thought that the RYA was the issuing authority for the ICC in the UK, I wasn't aware that you could get one from other bodies.

I'm looking at taking my RIB to France this year. I'm not really in to monopolies and wanted to see what my options were. I see that they are all priced fixed around the 45 mark. I've never seen the need or have been a member of a boating organization before now.

Book an assessment on your boat or if you have a PB2 certificate fill in the form that you can download from RYA - The Royal Yachting Association | RYA send it off with required fee there you go , you don't have to join the RYA but it works out cheaper if you do and valid for 5 years.
If you go the BSAC route you will still need to join and then join a club and then try and get on a course.
IYT not huge in the UK and would not know where any test centres are.

You can join the RYA for 43 by DD and get the ICC for free or just buy the ICC for 43.....bit of a no brainer really!

Yes I have a PB2, out of interest does this count towards the BSAC and IYT or do you have to partake in separate assessments which if I read it right would cost you lots more money?

If you wanted to go down the BSAC route you have to do the Diver Coxswain assessment (normally about 60 depending on the region). They aren't run too regularly but you can also do them at a commercial BSAC seamanship centre. Their entry level boat handling course or RYA PB2 are helpful but not a pre-requestite. The assessment covers passage planning, theory knowledge and practical boat handling (tailored to diving operations really so may not be that relevant depending on your boating).

To do the assessment though you need to be a BSAC member so the costs do add up on that route.
