Course Description: Ham Radio Technician Licensing
Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together. Before you can get on air, you need to be licensed and understand the rules to operate legally. This course will help you prepare to pass the Ham Radio Licensed Technician test and obtain your license so you can begin your journey into ham radio. The curriculum is primarily guided self-study and is approved by the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) and the FCC. The course will end with a 90-minute licensing test. The cost of the course includes the ARRL licensing manual but does not cover the cost of the test. Students must bring a separate check for $15 made out to ARRL VEC (cash or credit cards will NOT be accepted). Students age 16 or older may register for this course but those under age 18 must attend with a paid parent or adult.
