Marine Radio Course
All users of marine radio equipment are required by law to hold an operator qualification (licence). The GMDSS SRC (Global Maritime Distress & Safety System - Short Range Certificate) is a one day course followed by an examination and assessment period up to a maximum of four hours held on a second day.
The SRC allows the holder to use Class D digital selective calling (DSC) marine VHF radio equipment. The course also covers the use of other GMDSS related equipment such as NAVTEX receivers, EPIRB’s and SART’s. The course is conducted in a user friendly way with practical training using ICOM marine DSC transceivers. Candidates interested in attending a course and examination will be supplied with a course training pack prior to the course for home study. The only other requirement is a good working knowledge of the international phonetic alphabet.
The GMDSS Short Range Certificate is an internationally recognised marine radio operator qualification and in some cases allows radio operation on commercial vessels up to 300 GT.
Course are normally run on demand with a minimum course number of four.
