VHF Short Range Certificate
Devon School of Navigation
“The RYA Marine Radio Short Range Certificate (SRC) is the minimum qualification required to operate marine VHF
radio equipment on a UK flagged vessel. This includes both fixed and handheld equipment with and without
Digital Selective Calling (DSC). It is obtained by successfully completing an SRC exam conducted at an RYA
Recognised Training Centre. Prior to that you must complete a theory course”.
We can register you for the online theory course or teach it in the classroom
as well as running your practical exam.
You can study this online or in the classroom in Devon. To find out more click here.
Which to choose?
Much depends on your personal preference and learning style. To talk through the relative merits of
both and which best fits your goals please contact us by email or phone.
Once you have completed the theory part of the SRC you must pass the practical exam to obtain your Short
Range Certificate. The charge from the RYA is £70 and we do not add any ‘extra’ charges if you come to our base.
