In 2014 Fraser Sqaudron moved to a one day format for the Marine VHF course. This format has proven wildly popular. As a result we offer the class several times a year.
The one day Marine VHF course is a comprehensive and practical course focusing on all aspects of maritime radio procedures complete with simulated practice calls. Included is information on the VHF-DSC feature found on most new VHF radios. Industry Canada's Restricted Radiotelephone Operator's Certificate Exam is written at the end of the class. On successful completion, students receive a restricted Marine Operators Certificate.
The course is delivered in two parts: The first half of the session covers VHF operation and DCS specific features are covered later.
