RYA VHF Short Range Classroom Course

CLASSROOM COURSE - BOOK HERE

If you own a fixed or hand held marine radio you are required by law to hold an operators licence and if you are up-grading your installation to include a Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) radio you will need a new license.

The course for the Short Range Certificate (SRC) is taught in the Classroom. If you would prefer to do our online course click here.  Once the course has been completed the final examination will be taken at the club using modified DSC radios. The required course materials, which are included in the course costs, are available as a booklet or in electronic form to download to a tablet.

The course covers the use of marine radio including GMDSS. Routine, distress, urgency and safety procedures.
