This FREE class covers the study for Ham Radio license, taking the license (optional) and hands-on practice with Ham Radio gear (optional). Students will need to purchase the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual Third Edition before the class. The test session on October 12, 2017 is $15. So your investment would be the License Manual (cost will vary depending where you look which is approximately $30) and the test fee if you choose to take the exam. Morse Code is no longer required. Contact Glenn Otaguro (email@example.com) to sign up for the class—include your name, email address, and phone number.

CERT trained volunteers with Ham Radio licenses could qualify to receive a Ham Radio equipment loan from the DEM. However, for BRM CERT volunteers, you will be required to participate in BRM events and exercises relating to Ham Radios. Additionally, you will be required to take on comm shifts during BRM disaster responses.
