We conduct FREE classes throughout the year via Zoom Meetings. Instead of pau hana then driving somewhere for a class and driving home after, you can go straight home from work and dial into a Zoom Meeting from the comfort of your living room. We do ask that you enable your web cam to be sure you are engaged with the study. Classes are 7 consecutive Mondays. The first 5 are lecture, exam is the 6th week and the 7th Monday is an optional "Virtual Hands On" where we discuss shopping for your first radio, American Radio Relay League, Amateur Radio Emergency Services and a demonstration on how to use a radio.

Self study is required. For the Technician, you will need to get a copy of the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual 5th Edition. it is available on Amazon or the ARRL store. If you are on Oahu, you may contact me. I usually have the manual available for $25.00. I live in Mililani and can meet you half way somewhere. During the 5 lecture sessions we will be reviewing all 412 questions from the question pool. Each week we will review the questions from a chapter or two.

The time to prepare for a disaster is before it occurs. Thinking about getting licensed after a disaster occurs is too late!
