Eight hour course approved by ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority). It covers VHF (short-range), MF/HF (long-range) and GMDSS relevant equipment such as EPIRBs, SARTs and DSC.
Did you know that you must possess a Marine Radio Operators Certificate before you use a marine radio? You also need a certificate to apply for an MMSI number to be able to operate the DSC function on your radio and obtain a ship’s license to operate your MF/HF transceiver.
This course is a requirement for those looking to get their IYT Bareboat Skipper, IYT International Certificate of Competence, RYA Yachtmaster, AMSA Master, and Coxswains.
If you have a radio onboard your vessel, this course is an absolute “must”. We pride ourselves on more than just getting you over the line for the license exam. We actually teach you how to use a radio.
