RYA Short Range VHF Radio Operators Course (SRC). This is the radio operator qualification which authorises the holder to operate a VHF radio fitted with Digital Selective Calling (DSC). All new VHF sets are either fitted, or can be interfaced, with DSC allowing calls to specific vessels. If you hold the ‘old’ VHF licence (pre-1999) you need to upgrade to this qualification if you purchase new equipment.
The RYA Short Range Certificate course is now in line with other European countries as per the rules and regulations under CEPT (The European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations). This means the training has gone up to 10 hours with separate examination making the classroom based course longer in duration. We would expect you to have completed 3 hours of home study using the VHF Radio Handbook G31 and 7 hours of classroom study commencing at 0930h.
Using VHF radio simulators you will be coached through the course by one of our knowledgeable VHF instructors who will get you prepared for the exam which is conducted by an independent RYA Assessor at the end of the course. It is advisable that you learn the phonetic alphabet and have a good understanding of the Mayday procedures before commencing this course.
