Amateur Radio certification training

Amateur Radio Gives You the World!

As a "Ham" you can:

The Basic qualification exam requires a 70% pass mark. With a mark of 80% (a substitute for Morse proficiency), you gain access to worldwide frequencies. The Question Bank, from which random exams are prepared, is a publicly-available document.

Certification is not trivial: hundreds of concepts make up the curriculum.

New training platform

During four decades, volunteers have taught radio classes in the West Island. Fall 2014 marks a turning point: training becomes available through the web, thanks to Radio Amateur du Québec, the provincial association, and our own dedicated instructor of the last 8 years.

See details here at RAQI's training web site for a rich and engaging online course. You start when ready, study per your schedule and proceed at your own pace.
