A radio is an important piece of safety equipment on board and it is vital to understand the correct procedures.

You will be sent the radio handbook (G31) for your training and will have access to the instructors at the school for advice and guidance. On completing the online course you will be asked to print off the certificate which has a unique number at the bottom of it. 

Your exam will be taken within the classroom and this must be at a registered RYA school. Your examiner will carry out your exam and if successful issue you the licence through the RYA.

PPR (Professional Practices & Responsibilities)

PPR (Professional Practices & Responsibilities)

The PPR course is for skippers and crew using RYA qualifications to allow them to work commercially. As such, it is written mainly from the point of view of UK legislation and concentrates on your place in the international maritime environment as a UK certificate holder. However, it also explains the need to look beyond UK rules and regulations and take into consideration the requirements of the flag and port state.

Teaching scenarios throughout the course are based on a variety of boats, both sail and power. It may be that you have experience on none of the boats used, but that will not affect your ability to do the course as no specialist knowledge of any type of vessel is required – the same rules and regulations apply regardless of your type of boat or operation.
