The Short Range Certificate (SRC) is the minimum qualification required by law for those using VHF and VHF Digital Selective Calling (DSC) equipment on board any British flagged vessel which is voluntarily fitted with a radio (This includes both fixed and handheld equipment).

You will be sent a course pack ahead of the course with instructions on what to prepare prior to attending. This will give you the opportunity to read through the pre-course material and VHF handbook. A key area you should practice is the phonetic alphabet.
