Marine Radio Courses

Marine Radio SRC Course and Exam

A course and exam for anyone who owns a fixed or handheld marine VHF radio. A radio is an important piece of safety equipment on board and it is vital to understand the correct procedures. The Short Range Certificate is the minimum qualification required by law to control the operation of VHF and VHF Digital Selective Calling (DSC) equipment on any British flagged vessel voluntarily fitted with a radio, either fixed or hand held.

There are two stages to achieving the qualification; firstly, the training, which can be taken either by an on-line interactive course, or by a one day classroom-based course (with preliminary reading) at our RYA recognised training centre in Stourport-on-Severn.


2: Completing an assessment with a registered RYA/Ofcom Assessor. The assessment must take place at a recognised training centre.

A preview of the online RYA SRC course is available here.
