There are still some places remaining on the forthcoming ICC Assessment Course.
The International Certificate of Competency is recognised world-wide by yacht charter companies and in many countries is the minimum qualification required to charter a yacht abroad.
The theory and written assessment will be on Monday 9 Aug 2010 evening 1800hrs to 2200hrs, followed by a full day assessment on the water on Tuesday 2010 Aug 10.
The course cost is being shared between the participants and is likely to be between €165 and €300 max, depending on numbers and previous qualifications.
If you are interested, please contact Antoin MacGabhann for further details.
