Why do we need a Radio Operators Certificate of Competence?

There are many people working both offshore and onshore who have very little, or no, formal training in the use of radios and radio phraseology, who, as part of the job, are required to be in contact by radio with other people.   In order to ensure safety and good communications, all users of radio systems should have a common understanding of procedures and phraseology, especially when there is a mix of nationalities and languages such as we find in here in Kazakhstan.   Emergency procedures are only effective when communications are clear and precise.

This deficiency in standards was recognised by us some time ago and led to the formation of Caspian Radio Services, which provides a standard of training which is acceptable not only to the international oil companies, but also to the regulatory bodies of Kazakhstan.   There is an official requirement to be fluent in Russian, English and in the native language of Kazakhstan for the issue of a certificate.

I already have a Radio Operators Certificate, do I need another one?

It is possible that you may be exempt from the course, and may be issued with an approved certificate on the strength of the certificate you already hold, and after an examination.   You will need a certificate that is recognised and approved by the Kazakh authorities to operate radio’s within the territorial boundaries of Kazakhstan. 

I am qualified as an HLO, do I need a Radio Operators Certificate?

Yes you do, as you will be operating VHF radio equipment in direct contact with helicopters.   It is possible that you already have a Radio Operators Certificate issued in another country, but you will need a certificate that is recognised and approved by the Kazakh authorities to operate radio’s within the territorial boundaries of Kazakhstan. .
