RYA SRC Marine Radio / VHF course
RYA SRC Marine Radio is an online course supported by an RYA SRC/VHF instructor, followed by an assessment which takes between 30min and 1 hour. The assessment can be held at our classroom in Syvota Bay or at any other RYA Recognised Centre (SRC/VHF Recognition). There is an exam fee of £70 (Pounds) which is paid directly to the RYA.
Once you book your place on the course:
- we will send you the VHF RADIO (including GMDSS) Course Handbook G31 to read and
- access to the RYA interactive website will be granted.
- At the end of the course an RYA SRC Certificate of online course completion is awarded which allows you to participate in the exams.
- The assessment will take about 1 hour, during which you will be tested on your home study and course content.
This course is ideal for skippers and crews of sailing yachts who want to hold an SRC radio operator’s licence, in order to operate a short-range marine VHF radio with DSC (Digital Selective Calling).
Holding an SRC Radio operator’s licence is a legal requirement for marine VHF users throughout the world and also one of the requirements for participating in RYA / MCA Yachtmaster practical exams.
Please note: This course is delivered through the RYA’s Interactive Site.
The course runs on PC, MAC and is also available through an iOS APP for an iPad/iPad Mini. Please check the full compatibility here.
