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. You can review requirements for registering as a Field Examiner and find the information you’ll need to perform those responsibilities, including instructions for ordering exams, at: www.arrl.org/emergency-communications-field-examiners
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.
