One of the Radio and Electronics Team’s core roles is training and assessment. We provide training in amateur radio and marine radio. Via arrangement with Australian Maritime Collage (AMC), part of the University of Tasmania, we can conduct assessments in Amateur Radio and Marine Radio qualifications. See - www.sresu.asn.au/training.
We offer assessment for:
Approved Instructors and Assessors run activities, train and assess youth members and leaders to obtain one of the Amateur Radio License levels (Foundation, Standard and Advanced) issued by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). The Radio and Electronics Team schedules training courses within the Melbourne metropolitan area as well as in country locations. Special courses can be negotiated with the team.
We facilitate training and assessments in both Short Range Operators Certificate of Proficiency (SROCP) for VHF users and Long- Range Operators Certificate of Proficiency (LROCP) (assessments only) for blue water sailors. These qualification enable Yacht and boat operators to use their Marine Radios and other emergency equipment. Minimum age of 16 applies for marine radio licenses.
