As from January 2014 the RYA Short Range Certificate course has changed to keep in line with other European countries as per the rules and regulations under CEPT (The European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administration.

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.

Please contact us if you would like to book on one of our VHF Short Range Radio courses.
