VHF Self-Study Program $100
Lately, we’re learning that in some cases, boaters want to obtain their Restricted Operator’s Certificate (Maritime) but are unable to match their free time with our planned classes. In response, your Midland squadron is happy to offer a self-study program for your convenience.
If you are interested in this offering, please pre-register for this program below, and send the application to me so we may order your ROC(M) kit for pick-up and payment prior to a suitable examination date for you (late May or early June).
Please take the time to study your course modules carefully:
practise the Distress, Urgency and Safety Calls
learn and understand the Phonetic Alphabet
study the world time zones
understand and be able to convert time of day to the 24-hour clock
become familiar with the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) (Learn more athttp://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/eng/CCG/SAR_Gmdss ).
The Industry Canada exam (2 parts: written and an oral portion) tests you on each of these topics.
Your Registered Instructors and Examiners will be available for a short review session prior to the 2-part examination.
When registering, please identify that you are applying for the VHF Self-Study program.
