The Bridgerland Amateur Radio Club will be holding a “one day” amateur radio Technician licensing class. This will be a six hour “cram” style class. Testing for licensing will follow immediately after the class. The class is being offered at no cost, however, the cost is $15.00 for the exam. To facilitate understanding of subject matter and increase likelihood of a passing score on the exam (as well as reduced stress), those interested are expected to prepare for class prior to your arrival.
The class will be held on Saturday, July 15, 2017 and another class will be later in the year on Saturday, October 28th, 2017. The class will run from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM with a lunch break from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The examination will follow immediately from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
While the exam session is primarily being conducted for those who are participating in the class, all are welcome to participate. The exam session is open to those who are looking to obtain a Technician class license, as well as those who wish to upgrade to General or Extra class.
