VHF Online Radio Course
'Effective communication at sea in a modern environment'
About the Online Radio Course
Our Online Radio Course allows you to learn everything you need to know about using VHF Radios, at your own pace and wherever you like! At the end of this course, you will know how to call for help in an emergency, communicate with other vessels at sea and understand how to use various safety equipment you may have onboard.

This is an online course. After you have enrolled, we will send your login details. The course takes around 4 hours to complete. It is structured so you can review the material as fast or slow as you feel comfortable.
   
On completion of the course, you will have the opportunity to complete an exam and get your VHF Radio Licence. A VHF Licence will allow you to apply for an MMSI number for your vessel. An MMSI number programmed into your radio will allow the DSC function to be used in an emergency. The MMSI number will also enable your vessel to transmit via AIS. A Radio Licence and an MMSI number is essential for everyone wishing to be safe on the water.

Getting your VHF Radio Licence...
Complete the Exam
To get your VHF Radio Licence, you must complete an exam. There are two parts to the exam. The first component is a closed book theory test with 25 multiple choice questions. The required mark to pass is 70%. The other component is a short and simple practical assessment where you need to demonstrate the basic operation of a VHF Radio, and you will also be assessed on your ability to perform a radio check and how you would call for help.

You can either schedule an exam time with us in Sydney, or you can choose to complete your exam at another centre. If you choose to complete your radio examination with us, then you can book in an exam time using our online calendar.

Qualification
On sitting and passing the exam, you will be issued with a Short Range Operators Certificate of Proficiency - SROCP (formerly MROVCP) from the Office of Maritime Communications (O.M.C.).

Your certificate does not expire. The certificate fee is $89 (as of January 2018), which is payable directly to the O.M.C. when you sit your exam.
