This is a one-day course approved by ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority). It covers VHF (short-range), MF/HF (long-range), and GMDSS relevant equipment such as EPIRBs, SARTs, and DSC.

Did you know that you must possess a Marine Radio Operators Certificate before you use a marine radio? You also need a certificate to apply for an MMSI number to be able to operate the DSC function on your radio and obtain a ship’s license to operate your MF/HF transceiver.

This course is also a requirement for those looking to get their Yachtmaster, AMSA Master, and Coxswains.

If you have a radio on board your vessel, this course is an absolute “must”. We pride ourselves on more than just getting you over the line for the license exam. We actually teach you how to use a radio.

  • The exams are sent to the Office of Maritime Communications at the Australian Maritime College in Launceston, Tasmania where the exams are marked.

  • If successful, your certificate is posted directly to you.

  • Payment of an $89 exam fee (not included in course fees)
