Course Content

A radio is an important piece of safety equipment on board and it is vital to understand the correct procedures. If you own or operate a marine radio hand held or fixed set, you are required by law to hold an operator’s license. This course will teach you the basics of operating and understanding a VHF radio on board a vessel. To comply with requirement for RYA/MCA Practical exams you must hold a valid Radio operators certificate.
We use modified VHF training Radio’s produced by ICOM and SIMRAD. These have been modified so that transmissions are suppressed.
