ICC in Canada?

I am most of the way through the RYA Day Skipper course through NauticEd and anticipate getting all the theory done before the end of the calendar year. I think that I then need a practical test to get my ICC, is this correct? If so, how do you get one in Canada and what does it consist of? Do you bring your own boat to a test site for a check out sail?

Thanks,

Dan

Re: ICC in Canada?

OK, how about the Day Skipper test? I see by NauticEd's information that there is ability to do the practical in Halifax or Vancouver here in Canada but both require a lot of effort on my part including flights and over nights to get this done. Are there any alternatives?

Re: ICC in Canada?

Dan, frankly I don't have a clue what you are talking about.

I recall, vaguely, some years ago looking into some Canadian courses, but I don't think they were mandatory in any sense.

It might be you are the only one out there doing this?

Re: ICC in Canada?

You can get an ICC through most IYT schools. There are some in Ontario.

One of the places in JAck's link led me to:

Re: ICC in Canada?

Poker, I want to charter in the Med and it seems you need this qualification to do so.

I have my own boat so it is not needed there, I have the Bareboat Charter Captain certification for the Caribbean, now I just need this one. I do not intend to use it commercially.
