In partnership with Grassroots Sailing Centre, the BYC is offering the following course to its members.

ROC Maritime VHF Radio with DSC course

The ROC license is a Canadian Federal government issued card that allows you to operate a marine VHF radio. ROC(M) Certificate Information ROC stands for Restricted Radiotelephone Operator's Certificate and is required by: Anyone using a marine VHF radio or other marine radios (each person on the boat who will use the radio needs their own card). There are significant fines if you are found using a VHF or marine radio without your card. All new VHF radios are now being sold with a DSC function that will greatly enhance rescue personnel's ability to assist you in an emergency. Understanding this technology and how to operate it can, in some circumstances, mean the difference between life and death.
