St. Louis Metro ARES is sponsoring the following free classroom training for 2017. If you would like to see other options, please let me know and we will get them worked into a schedule.
Each Saturday in March (4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th) will be the ARRL’s Introduction to Emergency Communication class. The class requires that you complete FEMA’s Independent Study classes ICS-100 and ICS-700. The Field Exam will be offered after lunch on March 25th.
Friday May 5th I will be speaking at SLSRC‘s “Back to Basics” class regarding “Effective & Efficient Communicating”. Some basic skills and tips to communicate clear, concise messages when working as a communicator during a directed net.
Saturday May 6th will be a combined Basic & Advanced Winlink Express class. We will go over basic setup, new changes to the forms processes, and some advanced configuration tips.
Field Day is June 24th & 25th. Once again St. Louis Metro ARES will be out at Jefferson Barracks Park for the 24 hour event. Check back here and at www.stlares.org for more information as the time approaches.
And again I will be offering the Net Control Operator Boot Camp on Saturday August 12th. This 5-hour “boot camp” will introduce you to Net Control Operator duties, provide an overview of the Net Manager’s roles, and provide you with good operating tips to be a successful Net Control Operator.
ALL OF THE CLASSES & EXAM SESSIONS EXCEPT THE “BACK TO BASICS” EVENT REQUIRE REGISTRATION.
Online registration is now available and can be found by clicking on the “TRAINING REGISTRATION” menu option at the top of the page. You can also cancel registration if a conflict comes up.
