This course is designed for those who wish to get certified in the use of Short-Range Very High Frequency radio telephony. It is assumed the participant has no previous experience so the course leader starts at the very beginning.


Course Syllabus

  • Learning the phonetic alphabet
  • Day to day communications
  • Emergency & distress calls
  • The GMDSS network and system

On our course you will use real VHF radios rather than computer based simulators, we ensure that no more than 2 persons will share a radio at any one stage, this coupled with a complimentary set of course notes mean that you will not only pass the short examination at the end of the course but you will be a hugely competent user of VHF radio.

This is the Irish Department of Transport recognised course.  We have a high exam pass success rate.

This course is a pre-requisite for many other practical courses and is a legal requirement for anybody who plans to use a VHF set.
