Free Amateur Radio Licensing Classes

CVARC is offering free classes leading to an Amateur Radio License. We offer classes for the TECHNICIAN (Entry Level) and GENERAL (Intermediate Level) Licenses.

All classes will be at the East County Sheriff’s Station Community Room, 2101 E. Olsen Road, Thousand Oaks, California.

8:00 AM -12:00 PM, Saturday July 14, 21, 28, August 4 and August 11.

The test for each of these licenses will be Sunday August 12 at 8:30 AM in the same location. The classes are free but you will need to obtain a text book for each level of license.

The Technician License text book is The ARRL Ham Radio License Manual, Fourth Edition, Level 1 Technician. Make sure you purchase the 4th edition, because the question pool changed July 1st. The General License text book is the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual, Level 2 General.  Both books are available from, or Ham Radio Outlet . Each text costs about $30.
