RYA SRC VHF Radio Courses - Jan 2014 changes
We provide BOTH the RYA SRC Online and Classroom 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.
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:
FOR ONLINE COURSES
(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.
RYA SRC VHF RADIO COURSE PRICES 2015
The above prices includes the NEW VHF Handbook (£14.95) and the SPR Course Pack. Also lunch and refreshments if in Classroom.
Note: Classroom Courses will now be limited to 4 students, and each student will have their own Training Radio to use during the course. (We can run larger groups, but this will mean the course will be a two day course -with examination in the afternoon of day 2).
