RYA SRC VHF Radio Operators Licence


This is one of the more important specialist courses. It is essential for any yachtsman to understand how to operate a marine VHF radio.

Upon successful competion of this course, candidates are awarded the RYA VHF SRC Operators Certificate. This allows you to legally operate a VHF onboard a vessel, and is an essential component of the Yachtmaster Coastal and Yachtmaster Offshore Exams.

The course covers the different uses of a VHF in the maritime world. You will learn the rules and regulations governing radiotelephony, how to assess different situations where a VHF is used and how to operate the VHF to make these calls.

This course meets the requirements of charter companies throughout the Med and Caribbean who require that the skipper of the yacht is in possession of a VHF operators cert. The certificate also meets the requirements for Professional Yachtmaster Skippers looking to get commercially endorsed through the RYA.

The exam will be run by an RYA SRC Assessor and entitles the holder to operate a VHF radio on board any vessel. This is an internationally recognised commercial-level certificate.

The course also covers the GMDSS requirements with the additional safety equipment such as DSC, EPIRB, Navtex, SART AND PLB’s. Practical and theoretical training are provided and will cover Distress, Urgency, Safety and Routine radio usage. Your Safety is in your own hands.

An additional £70 Exam Fee must be paid directly to the RYA, by each individual. Please contact Gary for more information.
