Our next Technician License class will be held on Saturday, March 19, 2016 and Sunday, March 20th, 2016. The Saturday class will begin at 8:00AM and continue until 6PM. The Sunday class will begin at 8:00AM and end at 3:00PM when the Technician License Examination will be conducted by our team of SCRA Volunteer Examiners. We will have frequent, short breaks during the class, and 45 minutes for a lunch break each day. There will be an introductory class meeting on Friday, March 18th, from 6:00PM to 9:00PM to cover some of the class material in greater depth; and, we will also conduct a practice examination to provide you with useful feedback before the formal class. Location for the class will be announced in early 2016.
The Volunteer Examiner testing fee is $15.00. Check our VE Exam schedule under the Events tab for times and places for license examinations throughout the year.
If you would like to be in our class, please contact me directly via email. We have study materials available now, and we strongly recommend you get started with your pre-class preparation as soon as you can! Cost for the study materials, including the Gordon West 244 page Technician Class study manual, is $20.00, and you can arrange for pickup from me directly. We will be using Gordo’s proven study guide and method in this class. (In our March 2015 class, 9 of 10 students passed the examination on the first try and the 10th student later passed the examination. In the July 2015 class all nine students passed the test on their first try. In the November 2015 class all eleven students who participated in our pre-study program passed on their first try.)
GENERAL CLASS or EXTRA CLASS license upgrade? Contact me and we’ll arrange for mentoring assistance if that would be helpful.
We at SCRA look forward to hearing from you.
