RYA SRC VHF Radio Courses - Jan 2014 Updates

With the new changes being introduced we are pleased to announce that you have a choice of a Classroom course or the NEW RYA SRC VHF Radio Online Interactive course. 

SPR even have a hybrid course which is designed for people who may find that having enrolled in the online course, for various reasons want to change to the classroom course. This changeover involves an additional fee.

The classroom courses are now changed, and in order to adhere to the minimum hours of study, involve structured pre attendance coursework (should be completed in approx. 3-4 hrs.) - this will allow concentration on the practical work and refreshment of the completed course work rather than teaching it from scratch.

In addition to this we will now restrict each classroom course to 4 students only and each student will have sole use of a Training Radio to practice on.ss

THE NEW EXAMINATION PROCESS

NOTE: Whatever option is selected will involve cheque or credit/debit card payment directly to the RYA before exam.

NEW EXAMINATION FORMAT                                    

This will take the form:  30 minutes Written Exam, then 15 minutes familiarity of radios, followed by Practical Assessment – covering Routine, Mayday, Pan Pan, Security calls including using DSC Alerts (30 Minutes per person).    No more than 4 students being examined at any one time.

FOR CLASSROOM COURSES (INCLUDES HYBRID)

After completing the course you have two options:

1)      Be examined on the same day, 1700 hrs. to approx. 1930 hrs.,  this will be in a group no greater than 4, by an examiner other than your instructor.

2)      Arrange another day with us to be examined, by an examiner other than your instructor.  

FOR ONLINE COURSES 

After successfully passing the online course exam, you arrange a time with us and we will examine you, this process will take approx.  1 ½ hrs. to 2 ½  hrs. depending on numbers sitting the exam (4 maximum).

(Please note the examiner cannot instruct you, if you feel you need more tuition, consider upgrading to the hybrid classroom option)

THE EXAMINATION FEE 2014 IS £60 INC. VAT FOR BOTH CLASSROOM & ONLINE COURSES PAID TO RYA.
