We teach classes to help you get your Amateur Radio License from the FCC. The focus in class is getting you the information to pass the licensing exam, enabling you to get “on the air” to gain experience.
Our classes are a usually a “one-day” format, starting 0800 or 0830 and lasting all day. The exam begins immediately after class and is normally complete about 1900 (7pm). You’re in and out in one day.
We can’t guarantee you’ll pass, however most people do. Our success rate is high - on average, we see about 85% of attendees pass the exam. If you study for a few hours before attending class you’ll increase your chances to 90%+. (Less than 50% of those who don’t study in advance pass.)
The Technician (entry level) class is the most common, and we have six to nine of these per year. We also hold classes to upgrade to General class, and even Extra class. These are less frequent (perhaps annually), with frequency based on community interest. If you want to upgrade to General or Extra, please let us know.
We strive to hold classes in various locations around the county. We often alternate among north, east and south (with typical locations including Escondido, El Cajon, and Bonita areas).
