RYA Short Courses

These are one-day support courses to expand your knowledge and skills in specialist areas. They are great as stand alone courses, but also complement our practical RYA courses. The courses are run by qualified instructors in Ipswich with all equipment provided.

First Aid

This one-day course covers all the typical first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat, whether on inland waters, rivers, estuaries or on cross channel passages. Course fees £110

Marine Radio (SRC)

A course for anyone who owns a fixed or handheld marine VHF radio. A radio is an important piece of safety equipment on board and it is vital to understand the correct procedures. This certificate is the minimum qualification required by law to control the operation of VHF and VHF Digital Selective Calling (DSC) equipment on any British flagged vessel voluntarily fitted with a radio. The course will be taught and examined using radio simulators. The exam will also include a short written test.

£130 + examination fee
