SRC VHF Radio Online Course

Holding a VHF Radio Licence is a requirement if you are looking to Bareboat Charter or join flotilla sailing holiday in the future, so it’s worth doing in advance of requiring it. Add this to your RYA Express Day Skipper course or RYA Day Skipper Practical course to ensure you have all the requirements for your future sailing holidays and adventures.

SRC VHF Radio Licence Online Course

The course takes about ten hours in total and is completely run online so you can fit this around your schedule. We include the VHF Handbook which is yours to keep; this is available as an ebook or physical book with a postage charge added. We think the ebook is a better option since it will enable you to take this publication with you on all future sailing holidays conveniently stored in your laptop, phone, ipad, android tablet or kindle and thus saving you luggage weight.

You must complete the learning section and pass the test before we can organise the short assessment session physically with us in our training rooms. We will set up your ebook and online login the same day as payment is received.

SRC VHF Assessment Session

The short assessment session is only between an hour and two hours long at most. During this time you have the opportunity to practice with our training radios which are set up permanently in our navigation classroom. The assessment session consists of a short written paper, similar to the online end of course test, and a practical test whereby you will make a variety of calls using the VHF handsets.
