I did my VHF ticket or SRC certificate as it is correctly called (short range certificate) at Falmouth Adult Education Center. 20 cost for the training plus the exam cost which is standard.

Hello GingerCoastie!
Why the difference in price. Is that because it is subsidised? I assume the course material is all the same?

I believe the price is reduced as it is run by an Adult education Center who charge enough to cover thier costs which are probably less than those required by a specialised marine instruction facility.

The standard of instruction is the same as the exam is the same.

Interesting read

Glad to see you all recognise the services of the RNLi and the AA and the respective services they offer. Sea start is good but as I think someone mentioned there are many courses on engines out there for you to take ,be it inboard or outboard. Most problems are simple and can be overcome at sea
Good to see you thinking about the subject though. Check out the RNLI website at

www.rnli.org.uk

You can request free of charge all booklets from the site reagrding sea safty engines ,seamanship etc. They are good interesting booklets you may find useful. RNLI also run sea check which is worth taking up
