VHF Maritime Radio
|Prerequisite:||min. age 12 years|
April 12, 2014 and April 26, 2014
8:30 am to 4:00 pm
A comprehensive and practical 1-day course focusing on all aspects of Maritime Radio procedures complete with simulated practice calls. Included is information on the new VHF-DSC feature found on most new VHF radios. Industry Canada's Restricted Radiotelephone Operator's Certificate Exam is written at the end of the class. On successful completion, you'll receive your operator's certificate.
This course will be done in 2 parts: The VHF material is covered in the morning session and the DCS features are covered in the afternoon session. Boaters that already have the VHF maritime certificate but wish to obtain the DCS endorsement are able to attend only the afternoon session.
Advance registration is required because materials are to be read and studied before the class.
