The recommended minimum age to obtain this certification is 16.
Obtaining this certificate through an IYT partner school who has been approved by IYT to offer the “International Certificate of Competency” to their candidates automatically qualifies for an ICC which is required to charter a vessel in most European countries.
** For those Students that do not already hold a current Radio Operators Certificate we offer the option to obtain, at a reduced price of 6,000THB, the Compulsory VHF/SRC Radio Operators License during the 11 day course.
- Command of a vessel up to a maximum length of 78 ft /24 metre

This certificate is the level of competence that one needs when chartering a boat in the Mediterranean or West Indies where there are restrictions in terms of cruising area and distance from the base and the vessel has to be safely moored in a marina or anchored before dark
