This Self based Study programme has been developed to assist applicants for the examination for the issue of a Marine Radio Operator Certificate of Proficiency (MROCP), to study the material for this certificate in their own time and at a pace suitable to their particular circumstances.
What to do first
I recommend that you review the MROCP Handbook before progressing to the training presentations. Theses section contains important information concerning:
Review of Training Material
The recommended order for the review of material is as follows:
- Read only PDF copy of the Marine Radio Operators Handbook
- Review LROCP Sample question. http://academic.amc.edu.au/~omc/RevisionQuestionsLROCP.html
- Review SROCP Sample Question. http://academic.amc.edu.au/~omc/RevisionQuestionSROCP.html
- Review the power point present
- Routine calling procedures for VHF
- Film clip on VHF radio and DSC, http://www.amcom.amc.edu.au/
- PDF on VHF radio communications
Q and As for each of the above chapters are provided in the “Questions and Answers” folder and allow students to test their knowledge and understanding of the contents of the relevant chapter.
While a lot of the material in the Marine Radio Operators Handbook is not included in the content for the examination, students are encouraged to review all the relevant material (including the Handbook appendices) in order to gain a fuller understanding and knowledge of the subject material.
The Short Range exam will be held on a date to be confirmed and is a 50 question, multiple-choice paper, with a 70% pass requirement. The cost for the exam is $93.00 (cheque, credit card or money order) and payable to the Australian Maritime College. Students are also required to provide a Passport size colour photo to be included with the application for the issue of the Short Range.
A review of the training material will be held prior to the exam to provide an opportunity to answer any questions and to clarify any remaining issues.
