Licensing Classes

Instructors Crop Final

Several times a year, the Rogue Elmers Assosiation offers a series of courses that are designed to prepare participants for their license examinations for the Technician, General, or Extra-Class licenses (Extra Class Course is currently in development).
For more on these license grades see “Getting Licensed” on the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) website.

We have an upcoming Meet & Greet Session, June 14th, 2015 – prior to the start of our next Technician/General-class course in the Medford area.  Class sessions will begin July 12, 2015, and run approximately 12-16 weeks.  The class sessions are Sundays at 2 pm in Room 106 at the Smullin Health Education Center , (part of the Asante Rogue Valley Medical Center) at 2825 E Barnett Rd, Medford, Oregon.  (You may order manuals at the Meet & Greet, or via the email or phone number listed below.  Walk-Ins are always welcome throughout the course!   ( Though you may have some catching up to do!! )

There is no cost for the class itself, just the cost of the 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 at the same time 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!!

    when does your next class begin? (as I missed the Sept 8 start).
    also, how much do they cost?

    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.
