Event description

Description

Without a radio operators certificate, a VHF radio may be monitored for safety purposes or used to summon assistance in a distress situation, but it may not be used for general transmissions. These can only be made by a licenced operator or by someone under the direct supervision of a licenced operator, this is a legal requirement on a British Flagged boat.

If you hold the old VHF licence (pre-1999) and you operate a VHF with DSC (digital selective calling) integrated then you need to complete an update course to be issued with a new Short range certificate (SRC).

Duration: 1 day (7-8hrs) + theory/practical assessment (Duration: approx 1hr)

Prior knowledge: Up to 3 hours guided self-learning

Minimum age: 12

Under 16's: Will recieve a Certificate of Competency on successful completion of the course. When they turn 16 they will beable to take the theory & practical assessment in order to gain their Authority to Operate radio licence, they will not need to repeat the course.

Certificate valid for: Life
