Foundation Course – 28th – 29th October 2023

Foundation Course – Day 1

You will have a full day of training that alternates between theory and practical sessions where you will be able to exercise your understanding of the concepts just learned. Weather permitting, we will spend time both inside and outside the classroom (our Clubrooms) where you will have a great opportunity to examine the Club’s own working Amateur Radio station.

Foundation Course – Day 2

The remainder of the course material will be covered. To obtain this license you will need to pass a 25 multiple choice written exam and a hands on practical assessment. The pass mark for the written exam is 70% and time allowed is 30 minutes. You must however pass 100% of the practical component (its not as difficult as it sounds)
