Marine Communications Systems (MCS)

December 3, 2018 to January 28, 2019

MCS covers the VHF radios used on boats for safety communications, plus other communications devices, and teaches how to use the radio legally and how to provide information if you ever need help. This is not a technical course on the details of how a radio works, but explains the parts of a radio to help understand how it works, and some legal items to keep you out of trouble when using the radio.

The Marine Communications Systems course will be taught via teleconferencing starting on 12/3/2018 with additional teleconferences on 12/10,12/17 and 1/14/2019. There will be a classroom session on 1/21/2019 and the exam will be on 1/28.
