Re: Dutch boating license "Klein Vaarbewijs I" valid in CH?

I've had quite the discussion with a friend whose been going through issues with the licensing here lately.

Except for neighbouring countries they will accept a foreign certificate (France, Germany, Italy) and you can change your certificate for a Swiss one if you are resident here.

For non neighbouring countries they will accept an international certificate of competence if you are non-resident. If you are resident in Switzerland you need to do the Swiss License.

I know a couple of sailing/motorboat instructors who have had to do the certificates new here just to be able to sail or drive a boat in Switzerland and my mate who I discussed this with is in the process of doing it at the moment despite having been an instructor in the past and holding an International Certificate of Competence.
