Event description

Description

A must for anyone who goes on a boat or uses a marine radio.

A course for anyone who owns a fixed or handheld marine VHF radio. A radio is an important piece of safety equipment on board and it is vital to understand the correct procedures.

The course will be taught and examined using our Icom and Standard Horizon training radios. The exam will also include a short written test.

The Short Range Certificate is the minimum qualification required by law to control the operation of VHF and VHF Digital Selective Calling (DSC) equipment on any British flagged vessel voluntarily fitted with a radio. This includes both fixed and hand held equipment using International channels.

Course topics include:

  • the basics of radio operation

  • the correct frequencies (channels) to be used

  • distress, emergency and medical assistance procedures

  • making ship to shore telephone calls

  • Digital Selective Calling (DSC) using simulators

  • Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS)

  • Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB)

  • Search and Rescue (SART)

Course fee is £100, with an exam fee of £60 to be paid directly to the RYA.
