Are you interested in getting your Amateur Radio Certification?
CARA likes to host both Basic and Advanced classes in the fall and winter. The Basic classes normally start in Sept and the Advanced classes start in January.
These classes are not required to get your certificate, but they do help you go through the study material, and also provide in-person explanations of all of the technologies and explain the exam questions.
The Basic Amateur Radio Class has been scheduled for 2023!
The Advanced Amateur Radio class is also tentatively scheduled for January, 2024.
