New Ham Training

New Ham Training Classes are conducted in the first floor classroom at the Radio Club of Tacoma Clubhouse. Contact the Club's Education Coordinator for the dates of the next scheduled class.

Preregistration is required.

Classes typically run for two days, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on a Saturday and Sunday. Most participants take and successfully pass the Technician Class license exam at the next License Exam session. New Ham Training Classes will use as a study guide the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual, Revised 3rd Edition. Copies of the Manual may be available for purchase from the Club's Education Coordinator.

Helpful information about getting started in Ham Radio is available at the ARRL website. For an informative article, see "What is Amateur Radio?" by Don Cassel, VE3XD.
