Did you know that if your boat is equipped with a Marine MF, HF or VHF
(two-way) radio, you or one of your crew must hold the appropriate Certificate of Proficiency. Not sure?
If your marine radio has channel 16 (emergency channel) it is a VHF marine radio and this applies to you.
Marine 27 MHz radios (channel 88 is your emergency channel) are exempt.
Police, Transport Safety Victoria Officers or ACMA Radio Inspectors may ask if you have appropriate Certificates of Proficiency for marine radio transmitters carried on your boat during routine inspections…
With increasing popularity in recreational boating and awareness in the extensive VHF radio networks provided across popular coastal waters around Australia, training and assessment in SROCP is proving popular. If you think you may be ready to sit the assessment try the sample questions on the AMC website
Please keep an eye on the SRESU web site, MyScout, and Scout Central (Join in Adventures) for further announcements.
