The infrastructure to re-launch field instruction in ARRL’s Emergency Communications training program is now in place.

The printed course transcript is now available in the ARRL store: www.arrl.org/shop/The-ARRL-Introduction-to-Emergency-Communication-Course/

Field exams for the new course have been developed and are available from the ARRL Continuing Education Program office.

We’ve also just launched a new searchable database for Field Instructors and Field Examiners to register their classes and/or exam sessions on our website www.arrl.org/find-an-emcomm-class-exam.
