A valid ICC is often required for cruising Europe's inland waters. To validate your ICC (International Certificate of Competence) for inland waters you must take the CEVNI test, which checks your knowledge of the rules and signs that skippers of pleasure craft are expected to know and follow.

The RYA ICC CEVNI test is a short multiple choice paper and you can choose whether to take the test at Sailtrains premises or remotely from home or indeed anywhere in the world.

The "RYA European waterways regulations (the CEVNI rules explained)" publication G17 provides the information you need to learn the code in a clear and concise way. A sample paper can be found at the back of the book.
