RYA Interactive VHF Marine Radio (SRC) Course – £60.00
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. This includes both fixed and hand held equipment using International channels. A radio is an important piece of safety equipment on board and it is vital to understand the correct procedures. Unnecessary transmissions could block out a Mayday distress call.
Course fee includes postage and packing of the RYA SRCP VHF Handbook to you.
At the end of the course you will have to complete the RYA SRC VHF Assessment with Cardiff Yacht Company – the RYA Fee for this is £70.00.
RYA Interactive Essential Navigation and Seamanship – £90.00
This offers a great introduction to navigation and safety awareness for new or inexperienced skippers and crew, and those wanting to refresh their skills.
In fact it’s for anyone interested in sailing, motor boating, sea angling or diving, and works well in complementing our on-the-water training, such as the Powerboat Level 2, Start Yachting and Helmsman courses. Have a look at the link below for a greater understanding.
Included in the course fee is a learning package including exercises, practice charts, a textbook, dividers and plotter.
