The CEVNI online course is designed for anyone who wants to sail the canals of Europe.
This course is a great addition to the International Certificate of Competence (ICC).
Covering signs, rules and procedures for navigating the European inland waterways are all included within the CEVNI code, and pleasure craft are expected to know and follow the code.
Resolution 40 (ICC) requires that candidates applying for an ICC (international cErticiate of conpetance) with the inland category validated, have sufficient knowledge of the traffic regulations applicable on inland waters and waterways, in particular the CEVNI.
CEVNI is not covered in any of the RYA’s courses, even those specific to inland waterways, as these regulations are not in use in the UK. It is therefore necessary to have to complete a separate theory test on the CEVNI regulations and rules.
Courses run in a single format:
A nice simply online format for those looking to sail on the waterways of Europe.
This course is designed and aimed at inland water users of the continent.
Its great for developing your knowledge and expanding it further. I would recommend this to anyone looking to hire or take their boat inland in Europe to take this course.
Once you have it its there for life, it can save you a lot of problems having this on your ICC certificate. It’s a very quick and simple course and will take you a mater of hours to do, yet save you hours of issues on the inland water system.
