There is a small sailing school operating in the western Med (Sardinia, Corsica and Elba) which is affiliated to the IYT (International Yacht Training Wordwide) organisation and can offer courses that will enable anyone to receive an ICC.
The restriction which was previously believed to apply (being an EU resident or nationals of UNECE countries) do not apply when obtaining International Certificate of Competence through the Ocean Wind Sailing School (www.oceanwind.ch). The school has been approved by the Irish Government to issue ICC s to qualified applicants of any nationality.
This is particularly valuable to those cruisers who which to explore the inland waterways of Europe as the necessary CEVNI endorsement to the ICC can be then taken online.
