RYA VHF (SRC) Course (Classroom)
The SRC / VHF course is a one day shore based course followed by another one day of assessment which takes between 30min and 1 hour. Participating on our VHF course requires some pre-course self studying. Once you book your place on the course we will send you the VHF RADIO Course Handbook ( including GMDSS ) G31 to read. This pre course reading ( approx 3 hours ) is vital as there is limited time during the day to teach the essential theory to enable you to understand the practical aspects of the course. The classroom SRC/VHF radio course starts at 09.00 and will end at approximately 18.00 and the assessment will starts 10:00am till 5:00pm. At the end of the course you will receive a RYA SRC Certificate of classroom course completion which allows you to participate on the assessment. The assessment will take about 1 hour during which you will be tested on theory and practical use of DSC radios.
