Do you want to be able to call for help even when you’re out of cell reception? Or even just communicate with other members of your group? Carrying a VHF radio on your kayaking trips is highly recommended and a great piece of safety equipment.

To operate a VHF radio you are legally required to have an ROC-M (Restricted Operator’s Certificate (Maritime)).

In this course, we will teach you all there is to know about the use of VHF radios and marine safety procedures and you will have a chance to practice various scenarios. Upon passing the test at the end of the course you will be issued the Restricted Operators Certificate (Maritime) ROC – M with DSC endorsement which is good for life.



$169 (includes book, license & test fee, as well as the instruction)
