This enjoyable course covers both the training requirements for the VHF Short Range Certificate and includes the use of a VHF Radio equipped with Digital Selective Calling (DSC). The minimum duration for the course is 10 hours, no previous knowledge is assumed,
To keep the formal classroom element within a recognised day we have divided the training into two parts: Part a) 2.5 hours’ home study, to support this we will send you a home study pack including the RYA VHF Handbook (G31) by Tim Bartlett, and Part b) 7.5 hours training at our training location in the Midlands.
The course is a legal requirement for anyone who has or uses a ships VHF or portable VHF Radio.
As with all our training we aim to run one of the best courses in the UK, with our comprehensive training aids, you will not need to spend the day writing down copious notes, missing useful information. We use Simrad RD68 and Raymarine RAY54E and ICOM DSC training radios. These training radios are exactly as you would find them on the water, but with only limited transmitting power enabling us use and practice with all the radio functions throughout the day, including voice calls and DSC Mayday, Pan Pan and Safety calls etc
Ability after the Course
Upon the successful completion of the post course assessment you will have an understanding of radio rules and regulations and be competent and licensed to operate a marine VHF/DSC radio.
Our SRC / VHF courses are normally run in the Midlands and Birmingham area, for groups and yacht clubs, we can come to you at various locations around the UK
