On-line testing to obtain or upgrade your FCC license is now being offered via video conference. Please see the website at register4exam (hameducation.org) for details.
BIARC is looking into alternative class and testing locations that would allow us to maintain social distancing, so please check back for further updates.

The Incident Command System (ICS) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS) courses are recommended for Amateur Radio operators who wish to volunteer to serve our communities during times of emergency. They are often listed as prerequisites for the other EC courses.
* These courses will require that you register for a FEMA SID before you can take the final exam.
