Marine Radar Operator's Certificate

Radar provides the ability to see targets in the dark or in poor visibility, targets that may not be seen with the human eye. International regulations state that if you have radar on board your yacht, you must know how to use it.
At YachtCom we have a real Raymarine C120 navigation display unit which is used during the radar course.
This RYA certificated course will teach you how to get the best out of your radar unit.

Customer feedback

Michael Banner said: "Bob x3 this is Mike x3 It was really good to be able to do much of the prep on line. Bob evidently knows the subject backwards and was easily able to put all of us at ease using the radio sets and preparing us for all stages of the exam. I feel much better prepared for use of all the radio equipment on Morning Star as a result of the course. Well done! Out"
