Maritime radiocommunication examinations

In accordance with the International Radio Regulations, anyone using radio equipment on a ship at sea requires a Ship Station Licence and a certificate to operate the equipment. The examinations are organised by OFCOM

Beacons in the maritime service must be properly registered so that, in case of distress at sea, the rescue process works correctly after the EPIRB has been activated.

Information on examinations, examination dates, registration forms and list of organisers of courses is available only in German, Italian and French. Please click on the desired language above in the navigation menu. Only the information notice below is available in English.
