Event Description

Maritime Radio

The Maritime Radio course teaches emergency radio procedures and everyday operating techniques. Learn all about the uses of marine radios, choice of frequencies, operation, phonetic alphabet, procedural words and phrases, as well as Digital Selective Calling and the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System, (DSC/GMDSS). All mariners, including recreational boaters, will want to take advantage of the many features and capabilities of this innovative form “automatic” radio. Secure your lifeline. Be sure that you and your family take the Maritime Radio course.

This recently updated course, along with the Maritime Radio Online Study Guide, will prepare you for the Restricted Operator Certificate (Maritime) exam. To operate a maritime radio, you need the certificate. It's the law!

This is a one day course.  The exam will follow immediately after the material is reviewed.  Class will start at 10am and depending on the number of students, the day will likely end around 4pm.  Students must learn their phonetic alphabet and read the course material before attending the course.  Course material will be available for pick-up two weeks prior to the course date.

See course table of contents.
