You are receiving this email because you are listed as the contact person for your Amateur Radio Club or your club's newsletter. If you are not the appropriate person this pertains to please forward it to that person. This is the follow-up to the Tech class we taught in Oct & Nov. which had a number of PA participants.
Cooperative Statewide FCC General Licensing Classes

Many local Amateur Radio clubs often run licensing classes. These are very important to maintaining and increasing the number of licensed hams in the US. They also play an important role in the recruitment of new members into local clubs. Quite often, these classes have only a minimum number of attendees in comparison to the amount of work put in by the club members that teach the classes. They have to find (sometimes also pay rent for) a place for the class and handle other aspects of teaching.

COVID has also been a factor complicating in-person classes. Last year our club, Cuyahoga Falls ARC-, decided to take our Tech and General Licensing Classes online. We used Google Meet for online conferencing and Google Classroom to manage the class, distribute materials, provide sample quizzes, share resources, etc. We had a combination of local students, wider-ranging Ohio students and students from three other states. We will be doing this again this year and would like to involve your local club.

Our plan is to do our usual local recruitment of students for the classes, but we would also like to enlist your local club’s help in recruiting candidates from your local area. The big difference is we will refer any students from your area of the state to your local club for membership and, most importantly, in-person mentoring (Elmering). Even if you do not refer to them, if we have students from your area, we would like to know that we can refer them to you for membership and Elmering.

What we would like you to do:
1.   Advertise our classes in your newsletter, nets and local media
2.   Let us know that you  are interested in getting referrals to your club
3.   Take an active role in getting these new licensees on the air and acclimated with Amateur Radio operations

What we will do:
1.   Provide free online Tech and General Class Licensing instruction
2.   Accommodate students from around Ohio and the US of all ages
3.   Welcome resources, handouts, recordings, guest lecturers, etc. from other clubs
4.   Provide a sample news release you can modify for your local media
5.   Refer all students completing the classes to radio clubs and VECs in their local area
6.   Advertise the class on the ARRL website and locally

The General License classes will begin Sunday, Jan 16th, and run for six weeks. Classes are 1:30 to 4:00 PM and all students must pre-register.
