Marine Radio SRC - Free Download

To get the most benefit from your RYA Short Range Certificate (SRC) Marine Radio course you should go armed with a little knowledge of the basics. This will allow you to concentrate on the more complex information included in the course.

If you operate a marine VHF radio on a British flagged boat you are legally required to hold an operators licence, unless under the supervision of a qualified operator. The Short Range Certificate (SRC) is the operators licence required for Class D radios, the type fitted to most leisure craft.

SRC courses are conducted by RYA training centres on behalf of the Maritime & Coastguard Agency and the syllabus conforms to the requirements of the International and European Telecommunications Unions.

Under 16s are encouraged to attend a course and, if successful, may operate the radio under supervision.

The SRC is not suitable for those working on larger commercial craft, where a more advanced qualification is demanded.

The SRC is generally accepted internationally for operators on British flagged boat. To operate radios on foreign craft you should contact the appropriate national authority.
