Education Program information
The Snohomish County Hams Club is dedicated to making it easy for any person with the interest and desire to obtain their entry level amateur radio operators license to have the opportunity to study, learn and to successfully test for their Technician Class License. We also offer classes for hams that want to upgrade to the General Class license.
Past President Jim Ludden, K7KFB has returned to the role of education coordinator for the club and coordinates the planning of classes including location, instructors, materials and the 100’s of other things that it takes to make these things happen. We are very lucky to have Jim and all the instructors working so hard for the benefit of the club and the hobby.
The club typically offers four or more classes per year and will attempt to accomodate groups that may have a special interest in obtaining their licenses on a case by case basis.
Classes are a “License in a Weekend” style with classes beginning at around 6 PM on Friday night, all day Saturday and typically half-day on Sunday with the exam on Sunday afternoon. Costs is $50 and include the book and exam fee and a small donation to cover consumables such as beverages and snacks.
We can mail a book to you for an additional $5 cost. Please register no later than 14 days before the beginning of class to ensure timely mail delivery.
We also maintain an ‘interest’ list for folks that want to take a class, but none of the currently scheduled classes will work (time wise.) We send emails to those on the waiting list when we scheduled new classes, or when we hear about other classes becoming available.
With enough interest we can even add new classes.
The next Technician License class is scheduled for: 1st quarter of 2013. Additional details should be available by end of December 2012. Please email or call to register.
The next General License class is scheduled for : Fall 2013. Please email or call if interested!
We are considering re-running our popular “new hams” class series. Please email the Club Education Coordinator for more information or to express an interest.
