This course covers the training recommendations in annex 3 to the IMO Assembly resolution A. 703 (17) - Recommendation on Training of Radio Operators related to the Restricted Operator's Certificate (ROC).
The course is revised to meet the Radio Regulations 2012.
A trainee successfully completing this course and passing the prescribed examination should be able to efficiently operate the GMDSS equipment, and to have primary responsibility to radio communications during distress-, urgency-, safety and routine incidents. Given the number of severe problems being experienced in the GMDSS as a result of the large amount of false Distress alerts that sometimes occur, training will also be provided in techniques to avoid the unintentional transmission of false Distress alerts and the procedures to use in order to mitigate the effects of false Distress alerts following unintentional transmission.
Every person in charge of or performing radio duties on a ship that is required to participate in the GMDSS is required to hold an appropriate GMDSS certificate, which satisfies the provisions of the Radio Regulations of the International Telecommunication Union (ref. ITU RR Art. 47).
In addition, every candidate for certification in accordance with the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watch-keeping for Seafarers, 1978, as amended (STCW-Convention), for service on a ship which is required to have a radio installation by the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, as amended (SOLAS), shall not be less than 18 years of age, and have completed an approved education and training and shall meet the standard of competence specified in section A-IV/2 of the STCW Code
