Certified RYA Course

DSC/VHF Short Range Certificate

This is a one day course. It is a must for all seafarers at whatever level - replacing the old VHF restricted licence, it covers the use of VHF radio under the new GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress & Safety System) for routine, distress and emergency procedures. It is now the qualification required to operate a marine VHF radio. The course incorporates knowledge and use of DSC (Digital Selective Calling), VHF radio, NAVTEX, EPIRBs and SARTs.

Students require no previous knowledge other than to have learned the phonetic alphabet - we will supply this prior to the course.

We will provide you with a pack of all necessary handouts and can provide you with a list of recommended reading material etc. You will need to bring a passport size photograph with you on the day. The RYA issue certificates direct to your home address on successful completion of the course.

Cost: € 150 (Included in the cost is an RYA administration fee)
