W0TLM is proud to sponsor amateur (ham) radio license classes.
Just looking for a license exam session? Go here
Class Offerings: We offer two classes each year, usually cycling through two Technician classes and one General class in succession. Typically, we will offer one late winter class (Feb-Mar) and one fall class (Sept-Oct). During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have changed our approach with our classes to be three 4-hour online sessions followed by an in-person session that includes the FCC exam. The in-person session is held in a large meeting room with plenty of room to spread out. We will practice COVID precautions (masks, distancing, etc.) consistent with the current guidance from the county health department.
Technician License Class: This class covers the material for the entry-level Technician license. This is the class for people just getting into ham radio. No prerequisites required.
General License Class: This class covers the material for the General license, which is the next step up from Technician. You must have already obtained your Technician license to attend this class.
Instructors: Classes are presented by a team of knowledgeable, experienced, licensed ham operators with years of instructional experience. Our first-exam pass rates have historically been near 90% of each class population.
Venue: Online sessions are held via Zoom, which is compatible with a variety of computer platforms. Our in-person sessions are held at the Woodmoor Community Center ("The Barn") in Monument, Colorado.
Registration: Advance registration is required. Registration will be opened approximately two months prior to the sessions, and registrations are accepted no later than one week before the first session. Registration priority is on a "first-come" sign up basis until the class is full.
To register for a class, see Upcoming Classes (on the right side of this page) and click on Class details and registration.
Class registration fees support the work of our radio club: $30 for adults, $20 for students under 18 years.
Required Materials: All classes utilize HamRadioSchool.com study guides. A student must have a current study guide of the appropriate license level.
