Emergency Communications Training


We offer training in Amateur Radio licensing as well as in many areas of EMCOMM or Emergency Communications. Some courses are available online (see below).


Local classes are facilitated by volunteers of the MC ARES/RACES group. Technician Level license classes are held locally, usually on an annual basis, and are free of charge except for the cost of the textbook. Local General Level license classes may also be held if demand warrants.

Contact our training coordinator, Doug Shields ( for information on current class availability and schedules or if you desire individual mentoring on any amateur radio topic.
