  3. General certificate for operator of a maritime mobile service - GOC
    (to operate marine stations and coastal stations running on very high frequencies GMDSS on SOLAS ships (with condition of mandatory GMDSS system equipment). The certificates is issued in compliance with ITU's Radiocommunication rules, Decision CEPT ERC/DEC(99)01 and STCW Convention 1978 as amended (provision IV/2). Usually, this certificate is demanded by (future) professional marine officers, who need to undergo a special practical training in controlling communication technologies under GMDSS system and prove vocational or technical education.)

  5. General certificate for radio operator of a mobile radiotelephony service for maritime mobile service and inland waterways – VFN
    (to operate marine or coastal stations in inland waterways or to operate marine stations of maritime mobile service which does not use GMDSS frequency bands. The certificate is designated for operation of older radio stations without DSC controller. VFN certificate holder is authorised to operate radio stations in all maritime mobile service bands.)

  6. Restricted certificate for radio operator of a maritime mobile service – OFP
    (to operate marine stations in maritime mobile service up to 20 nautical miles from low-water mark recognized by coastal state using only very high frequencies, without using GMDSS system features, if the stations handling lies only in controlling simple external handling features. The certificate is designated for operation of older radio stations without DSC controller.)
    (Note: From 1 September 2019, this certificate replaces the previous restricted certificate for radio operator of a mobile radiotelephone service for mobile maritime service in coastal waters and inland waterways - OFN, for navigation in costal sea waters.)

    [in the application select choice (i)]
    Exam questions
  10. General certificate for operator of a maritime mobile service – LRC
    (to operate marine stations using all GMDSS system frequency bands on non-SOLAS ships (voluntary selection from GMDSS features, including DSC system - a standard equipment on most of marine radio stations), which does not have to be equipped with GMDSS system. The certificate is issued in compliance with ITU's Radiocommunication rules and Recommendation CEPT ERC/REC 31-05. Applicants must undergo special practical training in controlling communication technologies exclusive for LRC in GMDSS system. LRC certificate is designated for operation of modern marine radio stations equipped with GMDSS features (DSC controller, INMARSAT device, EPIRB buoy, NAVTEX, SART) in all maritime mobile service bands.)
    [in the application select choice (j)]
    Exam questions       Content of oral exams
  11. Restricted certificate for operator of a maritime mobile service - SRC
    (to operate marine stations using very high frequency bands of GMDSS system used voluntarily, on non-SOLAS ships (GMDSS features also includes DSC system - equipment of VHF maritime stations), without need to be equipped with GMDSS system. The certificate is issued in compliance with the ITU's Radiocommunication rules and Recommendation CEPT ERC/REC 31-04. Applicants must undergo special practical training in controlling communication technologies exclusive for SRC in GMDSS system. SRC certificate is designated for operation of modern marine radio stations equipped with DSC controller (most of marine radio stations) and the holder is also trained to use other GMDSS features (EPIRB buoy, NAVTEX, SART). This certificate is valid in Europe and  can be also used for operation of marine stations in inland waterways.)

  12. Restricted certificated for radio operator of inland waterways – OFV
    (to operate marine station in inland waterways within radio telephone service, if the station handling lies only in controlling simple external handling features. OFV certificate can be used for operation of marine stations in inland waterways of RAINWAT member states, i.e., also in the Czech Republic or foreign inland waterways.)
    (Note: From 1 September 2019, this certificate replaces the previous restricted certificate for radio operator of a mobile radiotelephone service for mobile maritime service in coastal and inland waterways - OFN, for navigation in foreign inland waterways.)
