    RYA VHF Course + Exam

    09:00 -18:00

    Apart from being useful for routine communication a marine VHF radio, is an essential piece of safety equipment, however to legally have one on board, there has to be at least one person with the VHF SRC Operators Certificate. Successful completion of this one day RYA VHF SRC Radio Course will provide you with this certificate and will also allow you to supervise untrained people in its use on board your vessel.

    The course includes:

    • Operation of marine VHF/DSC (digital selective calling) equipment
    • The phonetic alphabet
    • Basic radio language
    • Use of correct channels
    • Making calls to other stations
    • Sending a distress alert and distress Mayday message
    • Sending an urgency alert and Pan Pan message
    • Sending a safety alert and Securité message
    • Making routine alerts and calls
    • Automatic Transmitter Identification System – ATIS
    • Radio Rules and regulations

    The DSC element of the radio falls within the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) and as such you will also be taught about other equipment which falls within this scheme such as Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs) and Search and Rescue Transponders (SARTs).
