What Do We Do That Is Different From Other VHF Training Centres?

  • We allow a maximum of 4 students per instructor per classroom, this enables us to give you a very high level of personal attention throughout the VHF radio course
  • We never cancel courses due to not having minimum numbers. In fact we are more than happy to complete a course with 1 student in attendance
  • Our instructors are all full time instructors who are not distracted by having other professions. Our premises are staffed every day of the year and we welcome you to pop in for a chat about your training requirements
  • If you choose to do the course online we arrange the final examination at a time that suits you, we can arrange this anytime between 8am 10pm 7 days a week

  • Essential to completing any passage safely in any vessel is to have the ability to communicate to other vessels and the Coastguard when you have a problem or a serious situation to deal with.

    A VHF radio has always been an effective means to communicate to others that we have a problem or indeed for routine communications, in your VHF radio course in Glasgow we use real radios to practise on.

    Things have moved on as changes in technology are applied to modern communication devices. We can now send a Distress Alert (a mayday by text) simply by pressing a button on the fascia of modern VHF radios. This will automatically be repeated every 4 minutes to save you valuable time.

    The use of the Distress Alert button is now recognised to be one of the most effective methods of getting help.

    In addition we can send a variety of text alerts for various purposes in addition to making voice calls. A modern DSC (Digital Selective Calling) radio can therefore be a complex piece of equipment and the RYA/MCA Short Range Certificate Course is intended to explain how to use these modern radios in a simple effective and practical manner.

  • Method 1
  • The course can be done online, completed in your own time. Then you have to attend our SRC(VHF) radio course centre to sit a written and practical examination on real radios after a period of familiarisation with them.

  • Method 2
  • The SRC (VHF) course can be completed over 10 hours at our VHF radio training centre in Glasgow followed by an examination by an independent examiner which takes approximately an hour. Effectively the course and exam have to be done over 2 days.

  • Method 3
  • If we send you 3 hours of homework, fairly simple stuff, we can cut the classroom work time completed at our VHF radio course training centre in Glasgow to 7 hours immediately followed by the examination. This means we can complete the course in one day. We find that most people are choosing this option that come to do their VHF radio course at our centre in Glasgow
