The ISSA VHF Radio course is a one day course aimed at students wishing to become Inshore Skippers, Offshore Skippers or Yachtmaster Offshore Skippers. The aim of the course is to increase students knowledge and proficiency on air with routine communications as well as Urgency and Mayday incidents. Students are carefully inducted into practical useage of yacht radios and even hand held radios.
Students are encouraged to complete routine messages, conversations with other yachts, Pan Pan urgency communications as well as Mayday and Mayday Relay messages using DSC vhf radios. We also cover the GMDSS safety net system. The VHF radio course has been carefully crafted to the DSC vhf radios we use on our boats at SIA.
COURSE AVAILABILTY: This course is 1 day in duration – the VHF Radio course is run on 5th and the 19th of every month. Private courses may be arranged by mutual agreement.MORE DETAILS
