There are 2 requirements to complete the final process to obtain either your LROCP or SROCP certificate.
The final process involves 2 components:
- For all candidates to sit a closed book multiple choice question exam in the presence of a registered Exam Supervisor (Invigilator). The are 50 questions for the LROCP and 25 questions for the SROCP. The required pass mark is 70%.
Invigilators are appointed by the The Office of Maritime Communications. If you enrol in the online course only there will be additional costs to pay for the final LROCP or SROCP exam papers (currently $83.00) and Invigilators may charge reimbursement fees. Your total fees, including the online process, marine radio operation simulation, Invigilator costs and exam papers, should be approximately $250.00.
An Invigilator's job is to organise the exam papers, observe the demonstration of competency, ensure the exam is conducted in accordance with the guidelines, and return the completed exam papers, with the exam papers fee, for marking and processing.
An Invigilator does not mark the exam. They will oversee the exam process and then seal the papers and return them to the Office of Maritime Communications for official marking.
