Licensing Classes




GGET YOUR LICENSE! The Quad-County Amateur Radio Club schedules free classes on an as needed basis, that will help you prepare for the FCC Technician exams and get your license! The classes are taught under the supervision of an American Radio Relay League (ARRL) Certified Instructor by qualified, active hams who will be on hand to help every student over the rough spots. Additionally, our local mentors will be available between classes to answer any questions which may come up while students are studying at home.

These classes typically continue for 6 weeks, and will end with a Certified Volunteer Exam session locally. The material is appropriate for all ages from 10 to 110, however parents of those under 13 are especially encouraged to sit in with their children to provide any needed support. The course consists of the material you will need to know in order to take and pass the FCC license exams, and will follow the material in the ARRL License Manual Second Edition, which although not required is available from the American Radio Relay League or other vendors for the list price of $29.95 or through the Quad-County Amateur Radio Club at a substantial discount.
