The ROC(M) certificate is a Canadian Federal government issued card that allows you to legally operate a marine VHF radio.

ROC(M) Certificate Information

ROC stands for Restricted Radiotelephone Operator's Certificate and is required by: Anyone using a marine VHF radio or other marine radios (each person on the boat who will use the radio needs their own card)
There are significant fines if you are found using a VHF or marine radio without your card.

In addition, if you received your ROC card before the new Digital Selective Calling was introduced, then you are encouraged to return and get your DSC endorsement for your ROC card.

All new VHF radios are now being sold with a DSC function that will greatly enhance rescue
personnel's ability to assist you in an emergency. Understanding this technology and how to operate it can, in some circumstances, mean the difference between life and death.

At Grassroots Sailing School we offer the VHF course as one of the modules of the Basic Modular Theory course [SCHEDULE(link)]

While you are encouraged to enrol for the full module, it is possible to register for the VHF module only.
