After review of our last 2 years of training sessions, we have decided to expand on the training to 4 days to allow more time to discuss what amateur radio is about and explain in greater detail the course material required to pass the exam. The longer course will allow for more in depth explanation and to offer demonstrations of the material. We have kept the cost the same and will provide lunch and liquids each day.

We will have a Fall session and a Spring session. The Spring session will be March-April 2018. Dates to be decided later.

The fall dates are:

  • Saturday October 21 & Sunday October 22, 2017
  • Saturday November 4, & Sunday November 5, 2017

Saturday classes will run 9:00am to 5:00pm and Sunday classes 1:00pm to 5:00pm.

For more information, please email our training director at with your query.


The Advanced course is scheduled for:

  • Saturday November 18 & Sunday November 19, 2017
  • Saturday December 2, & Sunday December 3, 2017

All classes will run 9:00am to 5:00pm with a 1 hour lunch break.

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 Radiocommunication 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].
