VHF Marine Radio Online Course
The Short Range Certificate for VHF/DSC marine radio is a mandatory certificate for commercial endorsements and qualifications such as Yachtmaster. We can offer this as an online course through the RYA Interactive service, so you can study in your own time.
Upon registration you will be issued with a username and a password. When you enter your RYA Interactive portal you will see the courses you have registered for. Click on the VHF radio course and download the modules to work on. When all course modules have been completed, you can access the ‘pre-exam knowledge check’. This test must be satisfactorily completed, as the certificate issued is required for the licence application.
Contact the Aigua Sea School office to arrange your practical exam session. Please allow two hours for the exam session. There is a short invigilated written test, followed by familiarising with the training radio sets prior to the start of the practical test where a number of tasks must be completed.
The RYA exam fee of £60 is payable in two ways, the first is on the licence application; a passport sized photograph must also be supplied. Aigua Sea School can provide a photograph service at a small charge of just €5. The course is online, but support is available from the Aigua team if required.
The RYA have also now introduced an online exam payment system, from the 1st February 2018 the online payment process is the preferred method for the RYA but is not compulsory. Please visit www.rya.org.uk/go/src for all payment options and further information, the online payment portal is available here www.rya.org.uk/exam-payments.

I was most impressed with the online teaching and support for the Radio course, and when sitting the exam I found the school to be very efficient, professional and helpful including providing helpful feedback on questions raised during the exam and correcting mistakes. I strongly recommend Aigua Sea School to anyone looking for solid RYA…
VHF Radio: This online course was really engaging. Very good use of graphical interaction and allows you to go at your own pace. I now feel confident enough to use VHF equipment if the need arises. The classroom exam was actually quite fun!
