Hi Hannah,

I did my VHF course with Doug at stormforce coaching last weekend. very good course, only 65 plus 20 quid to the RYA and i got a lot from it.

www.stormforce.biz

there are lots of other places around. i am sure you will get some more replies on here.

You can do the course and will get Certificate of Competence and you will get your Authority to Operate when you turn 16.

Have a great course
Regards

Hi Hannah,
I'm running VHF courses on Wednesday 13th and Friday 29th April out of the Professional Powerboat Training's new office in Shamrock Quay, Southampton. Ring 01758 612 685 and ask for Aime. She will quote you a rate.

Regards
