RYA 1 Day Theory Courses

Cardiff Yacht Company offers the following 1 Day Theory Courses –

  • RYA VHF Marine Radio (SRC)
  • RYA Diesel Engine Course

VHF Marine Radio (SRC) Course – (10 hours learning) – Classroom based at Church Village

(Courses also held in collaboration with Cardiff Bay Yacht Club, and Swansea Watersports – see company schedule below for dates)

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.

Dates when the course is planned feature on the calendar based on the programme and resources page.

The learning is broken down into two parts – a 3 hour self-learning package and RYA Handbook are sent on receipt of payment. This is followed by 7 hours in the classroom where you will have ample opportunity to use the training radios. Arrangements will be made for the assessment to take place directly following the course with an independent RYA Assessor. The RYA Fee for this is £60.00.
