The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System General Operator’s certificate is a Certificate of Competence (CoC) in its own right as a ship-board radio operator’s license. It also forms an important part of the training required to obtain MCA CoCs. You will learn general communications procedures, in particular distress, urgency, safety and routine communication, using VHF/MF/HF radio, telex and satellite systems. Students unfamiliar with computer keyboards may be well advised to practice using them before attending the course. This is an intensive course, which requires considerable work outside the classroom. 

Please be aware that this course will run from Monday through to Tuesday of the second week, including the Saturday. Exams will be held on the Wednesday and Thursday of week 2. Please keep Friday available for any re-sit exams.

This course is fully redeemable with your ONE Account vouchers (excluding exam fee).

We provide this yacht training course in Antibes & Palma.
