Marine Radio Operator's Certificate

The marine radio operator onboard any craft is required to hold an marine radio operator's certificate.

The two certificates that can be obtained for leisure craft are either the Short Range Certificate which is limited to VHF only operation or the Long Range Certificate which allows operation of all marine radio equipment.

Therefore the Long Range Certificate is a must for anyone planning to spend time at sea and is issued by AMERC on behalf of the UK Maritime Coastguard Agency.

RYA Radar Operator's Certificate

Radar is a very powerful tool that gives 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.

On the YachtCom RYA Radar course you will gain the experience of getting the best performance out of a small ship's Radar system using our real Raymarine C120 navigation display.

Customer feedback

Terry Hackett said: "I have been putting this course off for years thinking that it would be 4 days of pain. The teaching was just at the right level, plenty of hands on and the minimum amount of powerpoint. A great course and a great instructor. Others on my course had travelled far and wide for good reason. Thank you; and I hope to never have to use most of what I learnt (MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY)"
