Amateur Radio Technician Level License Class

Pre-registration REQUIRED for classes & testing. The class is limited to 20 students. To pre-register please email

This is an intense two day course that covers all of the material necessary to pass the exam to obtain a Federal Communications Commission Amateur Radio Technician class license.  License testing is offered on the third day.

The Technician class license is the entry-level license of choice for most new ham radio operators. There is no Morse code requirement.

To earn the Technician license requires passing one examination totaling 35 questions on radio theory, regulations and operating practices. The test consists of 35 multiple choice questions that requires a 70% passing grade.

The license gives access to all Amateur Radio frequencies above 30 megahertz, allowing these licensees the ability to communicate locally and most often within North America. It also allows for some limited privileges on the HF (also called “short wave”) bands used for international communications.
