Neither of these will take a lot of time, but you might as well get it done now while you have time to spare.

But as far as on-water courses, apart from you yourself, the only people who are likely to care as you are just starting out is your insurance. If you're trying to get insurance with no experience ... every little helps ... So phone up an insurance broker and ask about what course accreditation they will recognise to help you get better insurance. I know that my CYA courses counted for something, but even then, of the four quotes my broker asked for two were still denied.
+1 to radio operator licencing and insurance constraints.

Note your licencing should align with your vessels registry. This gives you the ability to demonstrate compliance with your nationality / boat registration. Internationally reciprocal rights generally are honored.

We are Australian so I have Aussie MROCP ssb and vhf licence. There is no sailing licence in Australia so we got US ASA and I have a US ham licence as were resident in the US. We also have an Aussie MMSI and our Aussie registration is labelled as per Aussie regs. We have also retained the original US build and USCG numbers for traceability.

I was told this when I called a few RYA schools about redoing my VHF with them.
