Marine Radio Certificate Course
A marine radio is one of the most important pieces of equipment you can carry on board but it's of little use to you if you don't know how to use it to call for help in an emergency or other mishap. Marine Rescue will run a full-day course aimed at teaching members of the boating community how to use their marine radios correctly and appropriately.
The Short Range Operator Certificate of Proficiency (SROCP) course is based on Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) requirements. A long range course (LROCP) for MF/HF radios is available on request. The SROCP course participants will gain:
- the ability to use correct marine radio operating procedures when using 27Mhz and VHF, including DSC
- an understanding of the operation and controls of typical marine radio equipment; simple maintenance practices; and the regulations applicable to ship radio systems
The cost of this course is anticipated to be around $240 per participant.
