A Short Range Operators’ Certificate of Proficiency is a prerequisite for all commercial qualifications. It is also required for all who use marine VHF radios and is strongly recommended for others pursuing recreational maritime training.
This course is a self-study course. Please familiarise yourself with the Australian Maritime College’s Handbook in the lead up to the start of the course. You can do this by using the link below or if you’re in the area you’re most welcome to pick up a hardcopy from the Club during office hours. You will be receiving your copy on the night if you can’t make it in prior to the course. The night itself is in two parts, 3 hours of revision with the instructor followed by a 25 questions exam.
Also on the AMC website, there is a 131 question revision quiz. The 25 questions that will be on the exam is randomly taken from these.
You must be 16 years or older to complete this course.
