VHF training online
« on: October 19, 2017, 06:44:16 am »
I'ts been 4 years since I last owned a boat but looking to buy a cat C again. My problem is that I work abroud, thus I'm looking for options online to do my SRC so I can apply for the operators license with SAMSA. I realise that I will have to sit the exam but I guess I can do that at the SAMSA offices in Mosselbay where I live if I'm not mistaken (please correct me if I'm wrong). Has anybody done theirs in a similar way?
Another option is to do my SRC training internationaly but will that be accepted by our authorities, ICASA / SAMSA? Does anyone know?

As far as i know its not done online.
You have to be present as they show you how to operate the DSC radio for the various calls.
You are then tested on the theory and practicle.
