RYA Marine Radio SRC Course (Online) in Spain

The VHF Radio Course is also known as the Short Range Certificate (SRC) Course.

To get the VHF (SRC) Licence you must now:

  • Attend the VHF Radio Classroom Course in Alicante OR take the Online Course AND
  • Attend and pass a seperate assessment session, also in Alicante

You do not have to book the assessment at the same time as booking a course. If you opt for the online course you must still attend an assessment session in person. You cannot take the assessment online.

It is a legal requirement that if you are going to use a VHF radio you or someone on board must have a VHF Radio License. All charter companies require you to have a license if you charter a boat. If demand at your workplace we can run a course and assessment over 3 or 4 evenings or a weekend. If you would like us to hold a VHF Radio course for you at your office in Alicante do get in touch with us.
