Training


Congratulations. You have just taken your first steps to either enter the diverse world of Amateur Radio or are now considering embarking on the next stage of your Amateur Radio Licenceing training.

Incase this is your first steps into Amateur Radio we will take a few moments to explore the current training and examiniation system.

There are currently three levels of licence available, each one requiring an examiniation to be completed before moving onto the next examiniation teir.

  • Foundation - M6
  • Intermediate - 2E0
  • Advanced Full - M0

Foundation and Intermediate courses require the completion of a practical assessment as well sitting a multple choice examination. The Advanced Full licence at present only requires students to complete a multiple choice examiniation, however students must have successfuly completed both Foundation and Intermediate examinations before being eligable to sit an Advanced examiniation.



Foundation

Welcome to the Foundation Level Licence. Aimed as the first step in the 3 teir licencing system, the Foundation Licence will provide you with the basic knowledge required to get active on the Amateur Radio bands and gaining practical knowledge to aid you as you progress through next teir of training.

Nuneaton & District Amateur Radio Club currently facilitate a range of courses depending on student numbers, aimed at providing students with a stable introduction to Amateur Radio to gain their Foundation Licence.

Classroom Foundation courses are ran periodically during the year either on weekday evenings for a period of 6 weeks or the club also aims to offer an intensive weekend course (subject to candiate numbers).
