The VHF (SRC) marine radio course is the minimum qualification you will require, by law, to operate VHF & Digital Selective Calling (DSC) equipment on any British flagged vessel fitted with a radio. A radio is an important piece of safety equipment on board and it is vital to understand the correct procedures.

Course topics include:

Basics of radio operation, correct channels to use, emergency and medical assistance procedures and making ship to shore communication. Also, you will learn about Digital Selective Calling (DSC), Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB) and Search and Rescue (SART) equipment

We pride ourselves on conducting the assessment in a friendly and relaxed manner whilst maintaining the standards required.
