Maritime Restricted Radio Operators Certificate (MRROC)
Formerly the restricted Radio Telephone Operators Certificate (RRTOC), the MRROC course is a one day course (subject to numbers). Students are required to read the Maritime New Zealand Radio Handbook prior to the course (available at MIT).

This is followed by a 40 minute written/oral exam. Candidates are required to learn the phonetic alphabet e.g. A – Alpha, B – Bravo, C – Charlie and pay particular attention to the Distress calling (mayday, mayday, received, mayday relay) procedures when reading the Radio handbook.
