RYA TRAINING - SHORT COURSES


Short Range Certificate (SRC) - VHF & DSC


Southampton, 1 Day, £100 (Excludes RYA Exam/License Fee of £60)

The VHF Short Range Certificate (SRC) is the radio operator qualification that authorises the holder to operate a VHF radiotelephone fitted with Digital Selective Calling (DSC) on board any British vessel voluntarily fitted with radio equipment.

Format

The course is built around practical sessions on digital and VHF simulators. It uses ‘role playing’ emergency and day to day radio scenarios to reinforce learning. Practical advice is provided for using the radio at sea for routine calling or in the unlikely event of casualty working.

Content

  • Set up and operate the VHF Radio equipment
  • Speak on the VHF Radio set using the ‘right’ language
  • Understand how the VHF Radio System integrates with Digital Selective Calling under the umbrella of the GMDSS
  • Be aware of other forms of communication within GMDSS and their uses, e.g. EPIRBs, SARTs and NAVTEX
  • Gain confidence in the use of VHF and DSC techniques in a relaxed environment

Features

Price includes use of VHF/SRC and Navtex simulators, course materials, tea/coffee and free parking

Student to Simulator Ratio is no more than 3:1 using both practical computer based and practical VHF simulators.

Students are encouraged to devise their own role-play scenarios from real life experiences within the group.

The day is made up of small tasks and exercises that form an overall assessment of a student’s competence to operate VHF and DSC equipment.

The exam will be taken at the end of the day and payment (£60) is made directly to the SRC Assessor

London location also available for small groups.
