RYA Marine Short range Radio Course
The Marine VHF Operators Certificate is a legal requirement for the operation of a marine VHF radio at sea. The course covers the broadcast of a MAYDAY distress message as well as routine calls.
The operation of the set includes the recently introduced Digital Selective Calling (DSC) options within the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS).
This radio operator qualification authorises the holder to operate a VHF radio fitted with Digital Selective Calling on board any British vessel which is voluntarily fitted with radio equipment.
The course covers operations of voice only radios, Global Maritime Distress & Safety Systems (GMDSS) and Digital Selective Calling (DSC).
This replaces the previous VHF Radio Operators Certificate and all new VHF Radio users need to obtain this certificate to operate their radios safely and legally. Previous VHF certificate holders wishing to operate a DSC radio need to upgrade to the new Short Range Certificate.
You will be assessed by tests and exercises during the day. A "Short Range Certificate" is issued to students who successfully complete the course.
A legal requirement for anyone who has or uses a ships VHF or portable VHF Radio.
