This 1 day Short Range Radio Certificate (VHF) is the minimum qualification required by law for the operation of VHF and VHF Digital Selective Calling (DSC) radios and equipment.

The course covers the basics of radio operation, channels and frequencies to use, emergency and distress procedures including Search and Rescue (SART) and Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB).

Using simulators, we cover DSC and we always try to make the courses as practical as possible. You can also do the training online if you prefer and then come to our Bristol HQ for the exam only.

Once you have completed RYA SRC training you can then do the exam and we arrange for an independent examiner to be available. Prior to the exam you must ensure that you have enrolled online, through the RYA’s Exam Payment System. (Click Here)
