#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."
