There are 2 classes of Certificate, one being the SROCP, (restricted to VHF only) and the other being the LROCP. (Unrestricted and includes MF/HF).

If the Certificate is for your personal use only, the SROCP is the one easier to pass with less questions to answer. If you are aiming to work on a Commercial Vessel, join a Rescue Group, or own a MF/HF set then you will require the LROCP.

You must make a final decision at the time you lodge your Application Form or Online Application as to which test you wish to sit so the appropriate test papers can be ordered in.

The Radio Courses are held over 1 day, with the exam being held in the afternoon.

The last date for acceptance of applications and payment is the Friday one week prior to the course date.  This is for administration reasons and to ensure applicants are advised of their acceptance into the course and have sufficient study time.

Course Costs and Requirements:

*All prices stated above include GST and are in Australian Dollars.

Attendees will also need to produce a passport sized photo on the day to be included on their LROCP/SROCP Certificate and also produce photographic proof of identity, usually in the form of a Drivers Licence or Passport upon completion of the test papers.

You will be contacted by Volunteer Marine Rescue Hervey Bay personnel with advice of your acceptance and preparation requirements for the course/exam. (Once full payment is received)
