About Amateur Radio Certificates
NARC can help you get your Amateur Radio Certificate by offering both Basic and Advanced level classes at various times throughout the year.
To earn your certificate with Basic Qualification, you’ll need to pass a written exam. This is a 70% pass-grade, 100-question multiple-choice test, covering such topics as radio operating practices, basic electrical theory, and the Radio communication regulations that apply to amateur radio. A mark of 80% or more gives the candidate the additional privileges of Basic Qualification with honours.
Candidates for the Advanced Qualification must pass a 70% pass-grade, 50-question multiple-choice examination covering electrical theory primarily related to the additional privileges granted to holders of the Advanced Qualification.
NARC offers both the Basic and Advanced Course when there is a large enough class size. Contact the training director at: [email protected].
