ARES Training:
Amateur Radio Emergency Communications
Level 1 AREC (EC-100)

All ARRL C-CE courses are available on-line, thanks to ARRL's partnership with the Connecticut Distance Learning Consortium (CTDLC), a nonprofit organization that specializes in developing on-line courses for Connecticut colleges and universities. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available for all ARRL Certification and Continuing Education courses.

Each on-line course has been developed in segments -- learning units with objectives, informative text, student activities, and quizzes. Courses are interactive and include direct communications with a Mentor/Instructor and other students. Mentors assist students by guiding them through the course. Students for each C-CE course are required to pass a Final Assessment (exam) of 25-multiple choice questions each with a score of 80% or better. All students who successfully complete the course requirements and pass the assessments earn an attractive certificate. (Amateur Radio Emergency Communications Course Certification also includes an ID card.)

On-line courses open regularly each month, with registration available on the Web. Check the ARRL C-CE Course Listing for registration of any specific course. Watch the ARRL Web and Email for updates.

Registration by mail is also an option. Make the check or money order out to ARRL, 225 Main Street, Newington, CT 06111. Please mark the envelope "ATTN: C-CE." In the comment section of the check or money order, write "C-CE EC-00X Registration." You will be enrolled in the next available class.

Local "hybrid" training classes are in the planning stage.
Local sessions can only be setup by certified instructors
and final exams can be given only by certified examiners.
