Note: There is no charge for RCARC training classes, however the students are responsible for purchasing the training manual and there  is also a fee to take the FCC examination to get your license. Robertson County Amateur Radio Club does not profit at all from these classes.

We currently do not have any classes planned.
If you are interested in becoming an amateur radio operator, or are already licensed and would like to upgrade, please email
Neil Petersen, our Director of Training at km5vv@robertsoncountyarc.org and provide your
name and contact phone number. In the subject line please put "Interested in Amateur Radio Training Classes".
Neil will respond to your email and let you know when the next class will be scheduled. 
Class scheduling is based on the number of people interested so while there may not be a class scheduled at this time, he can put your name on a contact list to notify you when a class is scheduled.
