  • The class is presented by BedfordARC is free of cost
  • $22 for the book available from W5YI and many other retailers.
  • $14 non-refundable VEC test session fee

You do NOT need to take this class to take the Technician license test. The test will be conducted on 01-16 at around 2:00p. That said, taking the class will provide you a better understanding of what amateur radio is all about and as well as explanations of many of the test questions answers.

If you are already a license operator but want to come back for a ‘refresher’, you are welcome. An additional resource that will help you with study is the Technician Pre-Study guide (not required, but beneficial).

Seats are limited, so contact Frank Knox as early as you can.
