NAUT140 - Maritime Communications


Credits: 4

This 4 -credit course is designed to satisfy the requirements needed to qualify for an STCW endorsement as a Global Maritime Distress and Safety System Radio Operator. Current regulations allow a graduating Midshipman who passes the course to qualify for a waiver from having to pass a separate FCC GMDSS Radio Operator license exam. After successful course completion, a Midshipman will be able to competently operate the radio communications equipment required onboard GMDSS-compliant vessels. Non-GMDSS communications systems (signal flags and Morse code by flashing light) will also be addressed in this course.
