The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) appoints and authorises examiners to conduct written and practical radio-telephony examinations for the Radio Operator's Certificate of Competence (ROCC).

The CAA does not approve any training courses for the ROCC.
Please note - The CAA is introducing electronic examinations (e-Exams) to replace the paper-based system. This transition has commenced with Flight Crew Professional examinations for Aeroplane & Helicopter ATPL, CPL and IR.
If you are applying for the grant of an ROCC for the provision of an Air Ground Communications Service (AGCS), Offshore Communications Service (OCS), or Parachute please complete the appropriate sections of Form SRG 1413 Application for Radio Operator's Certificate of Competence.
NB: Section 5 of the SRG 1413 will need to be completed by the examiner who has conducted the written and practical examinations.
Once you have completed the SRG 1413 application form, this will need to be submitted via post (address below) with the appropriate supporting documents.
