With our practical RYA SRC eLearning course and intensive radio training, you have the opportunity within a very short time to learn all the important aspects of theory and practice and to put them into action.
Without unnecessary theoretical ballast – unique in Switzerland …
RYA SRC eLearning, Practical Training & Assessment
First you complete our proven RYA eLearning course, which takes around 10h. In order to be admitted to the assessment, it is necessary to go through and complete the entire course. Now you are perfectly ready for the SRC Marine Radio Assessment.
As a second step, you can optionally visit our intensive 3-hour SMA practical radio training. Under professional guidance you will practice all previously learned radio processes, as you will see them later in reality. On real radio sets and with the real people to talk to. This is the same equipment on which the subsequent assessment is done. A valuable addition to our RYA SRC eLearning program. This course can also be booked individually and is wonderful as a ‘refresher’!
As an official RYA Training Center we are entitled to test your abilities. The issuance of your internationally recognized SRC certificate will be carried out by the RYA and will be completed in a few days.
