Saturday, March 12, 2016; Gorge Hall, 9am – 1pm
Lionel Botting, recognized examiner with the Campbell River Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons (CPSS), has generously agreed to travel to Cortes Island to present a short seminar to prepare individuals for an examination to acquire their personal ROC-M. This restricted operator certificate applies only for VHF radios operated on marine vessels.
Following a morning seminar, the approximate 30' examination will follow immediately after a short break for lunch. Mr. Botting advises that the examination will include a recitation of the phonetic alphabet, so best to study that ahead! The Industry Canada certification fee is $50.00 and the certification is good for the life of the holder. If you do not pass, you do not pay; you simply try again!
Mr. Botting is generously volunteering his time, so there will only be a small participant fee to cover the hall rental and Mr. Botting’s ferry fares.
