What is a Marine Radio Operators Certificate? 

The Marine Radio Operators Certificate, also commonly referred to as the "Long Range Operator Certificate of Proficiency" or LROCP, demonstrates that the person in question has the skill required to safely and properly operate certain types of radios in vessels in and around Australian waters. 

In order to obtain the certificate, candidates are required to display the following core qualities: 

 

Why You Need to Be Qualified 

Above all else, the argument in favour of obtaining a Marine Radio Operators Certificate comes by way of the fact that it gives you the potential to save lives in a naturally dangerous environment. Going through the certification process provides you with a deeper understanding of safety procedures, gives you the experience you need to adequately respond to an emergency call and guarantees that your messages are understood and that others know how to respond in an emergency situation. 

The Penalties for Not Being Qualified 

Going beyond this, another important reason to obtain your Marine Radio Operators Certificate is that there are very significant penalties for a failure to do so. Anyone who is operating a VHF marine radio WITHOUT holding the appropriate qualification (or who is not under the supervision of someone who is) will likely be found in breach of the Radiocommunications Act. Penalties not only include staggering fines but can also include imprisonment depending on the specifics of the situation.
