In recent years the International Certificate of Competence (ICC) has been adopted by many European countries, and is compulsory for all boaters using both the coastal and inland waterways of Europe. This book explains the ICC in great detail - what it is, why it came about, who it applies to, and the requirements for all boaters to obtain one. The International Regulations to Prevent Collisions at Sea are briefly touched on, and the content of the ICC test is explained in great detail.
