Technician Class License Course
Interested in Amateur Radio? Want to become a ham? The Technician class license is the first of the FCC Amateur Radio licenses.
MicroHams will be sponsoring a no-code Technician class courses in 2013 on June 14-16, 2013 in Sultan, WA with more to come. Classes run 7:00pm-10:00pm Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm Saturday and 9:00am-noon Sunday with testing to follow after lunch. The class is available to anyone but we ask you register in advance because we have limited seating and materials. Testing will start at 2:00pm Sunday and is also open to the public by reservation. The class will cover the entire Element 2 (Technician) question pool with some additional material for those wishing to upgrade to General Class.
What to expect? These classes are concentrated, fast paced sessions with the goal of getting you to pass the test at the end of the course. Once you register, you should obtain the course materials quickly so that you can start reading it well before the class begins. The textbook contains the necessary background material along with the entire question pool used to make up the tests. More information on the textbook options is available here. During our classes, we review the question pool and do our best to explain the reasoning behind the answers and the concepts involved. For adults, we have a very high success rate, but our compressed format may not be suitable for children under the age of 15 or so. Please ask if you have concerns.
The course will run $40 and includes a textbook, handouts and the testing fee. The W5YI Technician Class book by Gordon West will be provided including a number of other handouts, even discount coupons for new radios. If you already have a book, the class fee is $20. Testing is also open to anyone for any license class but those not enrolled in the class will need to pay the standard $14 testing fee.
Class locations will be determined as the dates approach. The June 14-16 class will be held at Fire District 5, 304 Alder St, Sultan, WA 98251. All classes are open to anyone interested.
