VHF Marine Radio Course @ CY&BC;
CY&BC is pleased to run again the VHF Radio Operator Course.
The aim of the course is to provide trainees understanding (practical and theoretical) of VHF communication (Very High-Frequency Radio) at sea. The course includes training, preparation and examination for VHF radio license, required by the Irish Government.
