As many of you have heard the RYA are updating the way the Short Range Certificate (SRC)
is delivered and assessed from January 2014
There are a number of myths circulating as to the length of the new SRC course
, changes to the syllabus and so on. At Stormforce Coaching we intend for the course to be as accessible as possible and we will not be dragging it over two days or even a day and a half as has been proposed at some centres.
Firstly in order to maintain the RYA SRC
validity internationally the SRC course
will now be assessed differently. Students who complete a one day SRC course
will now follow straight onto a RYA SRC exam
at the end of the course as opposed to the continual assessment method we have used for the last thirteen years. For details and information click this link about the RYA SRC exam
It is intended that the RYA SRC Exam
follows straight on from the RYA SRC Course
and NOT that it is a stand alone session.
THE ONLINE OPTION
As an alternative to completing the one day SRC Course
students can from January 2014 opt to take the RYA SRC online course
instead. You will be able to take the SRC online course
from anywhere in the world as long as you have a broadband connection. Versions have been developed for PC, Mac and iPad. Throughout the RYA online SRC course
we will offer support to students who require it.
Having completed the RYA SRC online course
students can then book a convenient time to take the SRC exam
at our centre. As we have plenty classrooms, offices and full time Assessors, we are happy to arrange exams 7 days a week at a time that suits you. We anticipate a number of students completing the online SRC course
and then taking the SRC exam
with us when they are with us anyway on a RYA Powerboat course
or RYA Yachting Course
