Every vessel equipped with a VHF radio must have on board at least one person holding the VHF DSC Short Range certificate.

On booking you will receive a copy of the phonetic alphabet to learn before the course, and login details so that you can study the course slides online prior to attending the course.

On the Saturday and Sunday morning you’ll receive instruction from Ian Cheek of North West Sailing, and practice on dummy VHF radios. On the Sunday afternoon you will have a short assessment, and, if successful, your SRC Certificate will follow by post.

Please note that you need to bring a passport sized photograph of yourself to give to your assessor on the Sunday, to be included in your Operator’s Certificate.
