Course Objective:

This course has two objectives:

1. The student will be able to pass the FCC Technician License Exam (Element 2), qualifying for the first level FCC Amateur Radio License.

2. The student will have sufficient knowledge to operate an amateur radio station on the Technician frequency allocations above 50 MHz.

Philosophy:

This is a highly-compressed course that depends on the focus and motivation of the student. Reading assignments must be done in advance of the classroom sessions. The classroom sessions are fast-paced, covering a wide variety of material in a short time. The use of practice exams is very important for evaluating topic areas that need attention.
