VHF Assessments Available Starting Next Week
If you are in Antibes or around and thinking of completing VHF SRC Marine Radio course, do not delay any further! The course itself takes only 8 hours to complete, but a tricky part is getting an assessment.
What happens once you book VHF Marine Radio course with Seascope France? You get a registration form to fill out, and with that we create an account for you to start studying. Once you complete the online part, you get a Certificate of Completion showing your overall score. There is a handbook to consult while taking online course, and a hardcopy of it can be picked up from our Seascope France office.
Upon completion of the online part, you need to set an in-person assessment. The first step is to pay the exam fee which is currently 70 GBP and is payable directly to the RYA. In return, the RYA will email to you a pre-filled exam report, and you can either forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org or print and take to the assessment.
In January, our assessor will be available on the 22d – 27th of January, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you are willing to schedule and exam.
Please, bear in mind that once your exam is complete, your paperwork will be mailed to the RYA, and it takes the Association up to 21 days to process your application (not including mail time). The RYA offers a fast-track option for an additional fee if you are not willing to wait several weeks.
One more important thing to remember: your VHF license will be posted to the address you provide to the RYA. Seafarers are known to travel a lot, so make sure that you give an address where your license can be received.
