CARS Foundation Practical Assessment Jan 2016

CARS LogoAnnouncing a new training initiative from the Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society: Foundation Practical Assessment

These are a new series of two 2-hour sessions that are designed for people looking to sit their Foundation exam. It allows them to complete the four standard Foundation practical exercises:

  • Station Build / Antenna Tuning
  • VHF radio contact
  • HF radio contact
  • Morse appreciation

The first Foundation Practical session will be held at Danbury Village Hall on Thursday the 28th of January 2016.

These sessions allow newcomers to complete the practical part of the Foundation exam and have the RSGB Foundation Practical Assessment form signed off. They’ll then be able to sit their Foundation exam at any club in the UK for the next 12 months.

These short Foundation Practical Assessment sessions are ideal for those who are not able to attend multiple courses on weekday evenings, or to give us their whole weekend. Classroom-based learning is not for everyone, and many prefer to study at home using an online training course (such as our Foundation Online course), using the Foundation Licence Now book, or with the help of other amateurs.
