W0TLM is proud to sponsor amateur (ham) radio license classes.

Class Offerings: We offer two classes each year, 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). Classes are held over two successive Saturdays, 8-5 each day. A license exam session is included at the conclusion of each class. Please see our calendar information for specific scheduling of upcoming classes.

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: Classes are typically held at the Black Forest Fire & Rescue station classroom. This fire station is located at the intersection of Burgess Road & Teachout Road, in Black Forest. (11445 Teachout Road, Colorado Springs, CO 80908.)

Registration: Advance registration is required. Registration will be opened approximately two months prior to the classroom sessions, and registrations are accepted no later than two weeks before the first classroom session. Registration priority is on a "first-come" sign up basis until the class is full. Normal class capacity is approximately 35 students.

Class registration fees are our primary means of financial support for WØTLM. Class fees are $30 adults, $20 under age 18.

Required Materials: All classes utilize HamRadioSchool.com study guides. A current study guide of the appropriate license level is required for each class in addition to the registration fee.
