This one-day shore
based marine radio course covers the new Global Maritime Distress & Safety System (GMDSS), and is essential for any boat owner or user
of a marine radio.
The Short Range Certificate (SRC) is the radio operator qualification, which authorises the holder to operate
a VHF Radiotelephone, fitted with Digital Selective Calling (DSC) on board
any British vessel, which is voluntarily fitted with radio equipment.
Minimum pre-course experience: None - but knowledge of the phonetic alphabet
is useful but not necessary
Please remember that it is illegal to use a marine VHF radio (includes hand held radios) unless you hold a
short range certificate, or a VHF certificate
(the predecessor to short range certificate)
unless you are under
the direct supervision of someone that does.
The next VHF marine radio short range certificate course including
GMDSS and DSC will will take place at our training centre in Barry.
