Licensing Classes

New Instructors

At least twice a year, the Cascade Amateur Radio Enthusiasts (C.A.R.E. Club) offers a series of classes that are designed to prepare participants for license examinations for the Technician and General Class licenses. This course runs about 12 weeks in length.  We do not currently offer and Extra-Class License Course.
For more on these license grades see “Getting Licensed” on the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) website.

Our Next class will begin Saturday, February 2nd, 2019 at 9am.
Sessions are held at 
Fire Station #4, located near the corner of Table Rock Rd. and Berrydale, next to Railroad Park.

You may order manuals at a discount through the Instructors, or via the email or phone number listed below.  Walk-Ins are always welcome throughout the course!

There is no cost for the class itself, just the cost of the materials – two Manuals (Technician and General, $22.50 each), and $15  for the test at the end of the course.

This course combines instruction for both the Technician and General license classes.  This will make it possible to study for, and then take, both exams in the same exam session when you are ready.  Alternately, you can take just the Technician class exam and take your time to prepare for your General-class “ticket” later.  No pressure!!  However, the class sessions will cover information from both license classes.

    This is a GREAT ! licencing program. It gives everyone interested in becoming a Ham Operator the opportunity to get both your Technician and General Licences. The instructors are a great group of guys and they have an awful lot of experience to draw from. You would be hard pressed to find a better course.

    I know because I just finished the last class and now i’m happy to say I passed both tests. It may have taken me over fifty years to get them. My careers and military service prevented me from getting them earlier, but the wait was worth it. It’s never too late and your never too old.
