Restricted Operator Course Maritime (MarineVHF radio… ROC-M) is required for all boats using DSC (Digital Selective Calling) VHF radios within 25 miles of shore. As long as you do not operate further out, or your vessel is licensed to go no more than 25 nautical Miles offshore, an ROC-M course (one day) course will usually suffice.

Let Datum Be Your Marine Guide

“With the unique needs of staging a training course in the remote community of Klemtu we were looking for a training provider who had flexibility and experience in teaching to students with a wide range of learning styles. Datum Marine Services and instructor Chris more than fits the bill on both counts. Chris was fantastic with younger students and was able to keep the older students engaged and motivated. Well done guys!”
