RYA Radar (webinar version)

This version of the course is run almost the same way as the classroom version except that it is run remotely via zoom and to a smaller group of students. You will be sent the RYA Radar course pack prior to the course and through zoom will be able to access and control the Radar Simulator. In addition to the radar simulator, there will be powerpoints, discussions and an interactive whiteboard.

Course topics include:

  • how the radar set works
  • how its adjustments and features affect the way it works
  • target definition
  • radar reflectors
  • types of radar display
  • radar plotting
  • the use of radar in navigation and collision avoidance

Please note that a decent internet connection is required along with a quiet room, laptop or pc. The radar simulator doesnt work well on tablets.
