Marine Radio SRC VHF Online Course




RYA Marine Radio SRC VHF

The Marine Radio SRC VHF online course is the minimum qualification required by law to control the operation of VHF and VHF Digital Selective Calling (DSC) equipment on any British flagged vessel voluntarily equipped with a radio. This includes both fixed and portable equipment using international channels.

A radio is an important piece of safety equipment on board and it is vital to understand the correct procedures. Unnecessary transmissions could block a Mayday distress call.

This course is also required to obtain your Yachtmaster Certificate.

The online course is approved by the Royal Yachting Association.
