    WHO WANTS TO LEARN STUFF?

    You have a choice from some of the following courses that we now run at Vicky Point.
    1. MROVP (radio) 2 nights plus the final examination
    2. GPS (1 night)
    3. Navigation (basic plotting stuff) (1 night & good fun)
    4. Video Sounder (cupple minutes)
    5. Radar (1 night)
    6. Plotters (very heavy stuff - not for faint hearted)
    7. Life jackets, flares & life rafts (1 big night)
    8. Weather & Tides (2 seriously heavy nights)

    2 to 7 are a donation of $20 each or if yer too miserable, get it free anyway, the Radio Course is free 'cept for $65 for manual & exam Govt costs (our contribution for safety)

    Just kicking the ideas around and see what interest is out there. These courses are all to National Standards and the best around.

    Ian,

    Am interested in the MROVP but I live in the north west (Ferny Hills) so is a country mile to get there. Is it a course that I could read up on and finish it in the second night? Would be to difficult to do all the course after work but would like to legally use my radio.

    The course can be done directly from the MROVP manual itself if you like wading through all the technical stuff. We also have a CD using Powerpoint that can be loaned out (for a few bucks) and that is basically what we instruct from. Not an easy course but very "doable" all the same. We like to chuck in some practical information as well that seems to help.

    Hi Ian,

    I've actually joined this site just to respond and express my interest with regards to your post (both of them actually)
    I hope this makes you feel better about whether your efforts are worthwhile and appreciated. As a newbie and fairly inexperienced boatie I was about to embark on sourcing info on most of the topics you mentioned, so your posting was right on cue. I'd certainly be interested in attending several of the courses, should they be offered by Vicky Point or elsewhere. Of special interest are 1,2 6,7 & 8 [smiley=2thumbsup.gif]
    Oh, and just one more question Ian - do you need a license for a VHF radio? I was told that I'm able to attend a 5-week course at any VMR. Is this correct?
    Many thanks in advance,
    Herby
