Information on In Person Classes

Dial has a long history of offering in person classes to prepare students for their amateur license exams for over 30 years, but they have been temporarily put on hold since the beginning of COVID-19.  The student's only financial investment in the in person class is to purchase the text.  Classes had been held at Miami University Middletown and generally followed Miami's calendar.  The Technician class usually started in late August.  The General course followed the Technician and ended around Thanksgiving.  Spring classes began in late January and continued though early May.  Classes were held on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm.  The Technician and General classes had been offered every year - depending upon interest. They lasted 6 weeks and were followed by an exam session.  The Amateur Extra preparation class was offered less frequently.  It is a 12 week class that was typically offered every other year during the spring. 

Instructors are Dial members.  Students were likely to 'see' different instructors every class meeting in the Technician and General preparation courses.  Some of the more technical topics for the Extra are broken into two consecutive weeks with the same instructor.  Still, over the entire class, there could more than six different instructors.
