Coastguard is pleased to offer an opportunity specifically tailored for younger students to gain the highly regarded Marine Radio VHF Operator qualification during the school holidays.

This is the minimum qualification required to operate a Marine VHF Radio in anything other than an emergency. It will cover routine operation, how it can assist with safety as well as distress and urgency calls. Unlike the adult course, this two day course gives us more time on scenarios and exercises to help retain information.

With this qualification there is nothing stopping your child getting involved as the onboard designated trip report person. They will develop confidence on the radio which is a useful skill they will carry into their future.

Those who successfully complete the assessment can apply for Unit Standard 19491 (Level 3, 3 credits) to be added to their record of learning. (A small administrative charge for this may apply).
