Change of Certificate Names

As of first September 2015 our office commenced issuing certificates with the new names. The re-naming reflects ITU terminology and aligns the naming of Australian certificates with common world practice. With the updating of forms, documents and the website there may be some 'cross over' and confusion. We apologise and request that you have patience as we work through the changes. When applying for a replacement of the old named certificates, a certificate with the new name will be issued as they are considered to be equivalent.

  • MROCP is now LROCP - Long Range Operator Certificate of Proficiency.
  • MROVCP is now SROCP - Short Range Operator Certificate of Proficiency.
  • MSCCE is now MSCE - Marine Satellite Communications Endorsement.
