RYA Marine Radio Short Range Certificate (SRC)

18th May, 08:30 - 20:00

A VHF Marine Radio, whether handheld or fixed, facilitates communication with coast stations, port/harbour authorities, and other vessels. This mode of communication is a crucial aspect of safety equipment, and it's essential to grasp the correct procedures.

The RYA VHF Marine Radio Course consists of one day of instruction, including 2-3 hours of pre-course reading. Towards the end of the day, there will be an examination overseen by an external moderator. Please note that this is a full day starting at 8:30 am and potentially concluding at 7:00 pm, with only a 30-minute lunch break and a couple of short comfort breaks. It's advisable to bring a packed lunch.

The majority of the day is dedicated to training on VHF radios and acquiring essential information. There will be a couple of coffee breaks and a lunch break, taking us to approximately 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm. After a separate moderator and assessor will give you a 25-question multiple-choice exam, followed by a practical emergency procedure exercise on the VHF radio. The day is expected to conclude between approximately 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm.

Please remember a passport photo or yourself for the certificate.

Please add the RYA exam fee to your booking before checkout if you want to take the exam at the end of the course.

Please add the RYA publication G22 to your basket if you wish to buy this as well. You will receive publication G31 as part of the course.
