Owners of hand held, or fixed, marine radio sets are required by law to hold an operator’s licence.
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.
Our advice is that you opt for the Online course, but the choice is yours. Preview the Online Course, and take the Taster Course.
