Marine Communications – Marine Radio Active Scouts

Hello marine and radioactive scouts,

I am pleased to advise that we now have three (3) approved team members authorised by the Australian Maritime College (AMC) to Invigilate examinations in the following qualifications:
• Marine Radio Operator’s Certificate of Proficiency (MROCP)
• Marine Radio Operators VHF Certificate of Proficiency (MROVCP)

I congratulate Jenny Adams and Peter Chaplin for joining me in this new endeavour to provide valuable skills for Venturers (over 16 years), Rovers and Leaders. With increasing popularity in recreational boating and the extensive VHF radio networks provided across popular coastal waters around Australia, training and assessment in MROVCP is anticipated to prove popular.

This training will be in addition to our established WIA authorised Amateur Radio training and assessment capability.

Please keep an eye on the SRESU web site, MyScout, and Scout Central – Join in Adventures for training dates and further announcements.

Regards
