We run one-day RYA support courses to allow you to expand your knowledge and enhance your skills in specialist areas. They are great as a standalone course, but also complement our practical training.
Our main training base is situated in Lowestoft, Suffolk but we are happy to discuss training throughout the UK.
To discuss your training or to find out more information on what we can offer please do not hesitate to contact us on 07570 794196 or by email. We are open seven days a week.

CEVNI (Européen des Voies de Navigation Intérieure) is the code governing navigation on the interconnected European inland waterways. This exam is for anyone who is looking to boat on the Inland Waterways of Europe. CEVNI is not covered in any of the RYA’s courses, even those specific to inland waterways. It is therefore necessary to have a separate theory test on the CEVNI regulations. There is no separate CEVNI certificate or CEVNI endorsement. Passing the ICC CEVNI test simply allows the Inland category on your ICC to be validated, thereby indicating that you have demonstrated knowledge of the traffic regulations applicable on inland waters or Europe.
Maximum 12 people. Minimum age to take the assessment is 16. Some pre course learning will be sent to you prior to attending the exam. Price includes RYA European Regulations Handbook (G17). An additional fee will be charged by the RYA on application of our ICC.
Book 2 places for £67
Book 3 places for £99
Free when booked with any ICC Assesment.
