RYA VHF (SRC) Course (Online)

The SRC / VHF course is an online course supported by an RYA SRC/VHF instructor, followed by an assessment which takes between 30min and 1 hour. The assessment will be held at DOSC. There is an exam / Licence fee of ¬£60 (Pounds) which is paid directly to the RYA.

Once you book your place on the course VHF RADIO (including GMDSS) Course Handbook G31 can be collected here in the club and you will get access to the RYA interactive website. At the end of the course you will receive an RYA SRC Certificate of online course completion which allows you to participate in the exams. The assessment will take about 1 hour, during which you will be tested on your home study and course content.

This course is ideal for skippers and crews of sailing yachts who want to hold an SRC radio operators license, in order to operate a short-range marine VHF radio with DSC (Digital Selective Calling). The SRC Radio operators license is a legal requirement for marine VHF users throughout the world and also one of the requirements for participating in RYA / MCA Yachtmaster practical exams.

The VHF/SRC course is delivered through the RYAs Interactive Site.
