The RYA Marine Radio Short Range Certificate (SRC) is the minimum qualification required to operate marine VHF radio equipment on a UK flagged vessel.
Our one-day course covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat, whether on inland waters, rivers, estuaries or on cross channel passages.
Prior to this course a £60 licence fee needs to be paid to the RYA.
This one-day course covers all aspects of basic life support and casualty management. It deals with many of the first aid issues that may be encountered whilst at sea. This is a practical course with lots of student participation. A lot of time is spent practicing resuscitation on manikins and dealing with simulated incidents. First Aid book supplied.

One day classroom based course, prior to this you will be sent a course pack which will require about three hours pre course study. The classroom based course will allow you to use real simulator radios which will allow you to practice sending distress signals, voice messages and alerts, which will also include the MAYDAY distress signal. After you have completed this you will now be required to take an assessment exam which will consist of a short question paper and also be able to show practical use of the radio. This has to be conducted by a separate assessor from your instructor and should take between 30 and 50 minutes. If possible we will try and arrange this the same day.
