Certificate of Competency

Polished brass morse paddle with red pads and contactsThe RSGB Morse Certificate of Competency provides recognition for those learning Morse code—it is not a national standard of proficiency like the licence examinations

There is no compulsory requirement to obtain a Morse Certificate.

As with many other awards in the hobby, some will wish to obtain the award and some will not.

International recognition has never been an aspiration of the RSGB Morse Competency scheme; whether the RSGB Certificate is recognized by other countries that still require a Morse is a matter for those countries.

There are no test fees charged by the RSGB.
