RYA Launches New Online Radio Course

10th January 2014
RYA Launches New Online Radio Course

#radiocourse – An online version of the RYA Marine Radio Short Range Certificate course has been launched at the London Boat Show and is now available via an interactive app for PCs and Mac with an iPad version coming online in February.

The SRC course requires a period of home learning using the RYA VHF Handbook before entering the classroom for a one-day course followed by an assessment. Now anyone taking the course can choose to take the course online; only going into the classroom for the assessment. It can be completed at your own pace, but as with the classroom course it is designed to cover 10 hours of learning.

Speaking at the course's launch Craig Burton RYA Training Resources Manager commented "We have pushed the boundaries of e-learning taking this course online because it ties together aspects of computer hardware; the voice recorder and playback, with accessible online content."

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
