Class Schedules

Spring 2022 Exam Prep & Skills Seminars

All classes – exam prep and skills – subject to the pandemic worsening, the plan is to teach hybrid, a classroom-studio with students present and Zoom connection for distant students.

There is a minimum of 5 students for a class to be established since there are inevitable drop-outs.

Class dates are the week of March 7 to May 13, 2022. Each License level’s class (Technician, General, Extra) is on a different day of the week, but the same day of the week for all 10 weeks.

The tuition fees cover instructors’ supplies, support the club, help cover the Zoom software license, and other RARC costs of providing these classes. The RARC is charged fees for your use of credit and debit cards, so a discount of offered for cash and check payment.
