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 licence. 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.

We provide this yacht training course in Fort Lauderdale, Palma & Antibes.
