We are obliged by the RYA to advise our students that this course is available as a 1 day Classroom course or an Online Study course.
However, for the Classroom course our instructor is not able to offer the final exam for your licence after your course. This means our students have to find a different school to carry out the exam. Here in Antigua this imposes considerable inconvenience on our students.
We therefore only offer the Online course.
With this course, once you have booked your exam with us, you will need to create a free account on the RYA website RYA Sign In, pay the RYA the exam fee upon application here SRC Exam Application & Payment. (The fee is £60 or approximately US$85).
Your application and payment will be confirmed by email from the RYA. Please forward this to us. Upon receipt we will send you the RYA VHF eBook Redemption Voucher and comprehensive instructions on how to login to the course and RYA Books application. These will include information on where to download the application, how to login, and how to download the eBook.
