Course Summary

This shore based course is a legal requirement for anyone who intends to use VHF marine radios, both fixed stations and transportables. The course includes use of GMDSS emergency features found on newer radios and therefore provides a basic qualification, refresher update and an upgrade for those who may have taken this course before the launch of this service. An additional fee (currently £30) is payable to the RYA through the instructor on completion of the course for the issue of the certificate. Please provide a passport photo for the certificate application.
