We are now just 3 weeks away from our next EC-001 "boot camp" style class for EC-001, the ARRL Introduction to Emergency Communications course.  A team of certified ARRL Field Instructors will present a PowerPoint based course in this intensive two Saturday course ending with the certification exam.

In an effort to make Emergency Communications training more widely available, a local classroom session of the ARRL’s EC-001 Introduction to Emergency Communications course will begin shortly in Cairo, NY. This course is a complete rewrite of the original Level 1, 2 and 3 courses of years past and now more closely follows the Incident Command System (ICS) used by government agencies. This course requires proof of completion of FEMA IS-100 and 700 as prerequisites for taking the final certification exam. The exam closely follows the style of a standard

VE session with a 35 question multiple choice test scored by two accredited Field Examiners (FI). The exam fee is $15, same as a VE session. The classes will run on a two full day set of Saturday sessions. We will take breaks and a lunch period. The course will conclude with an exam given at the last session. There is no charge for the class. The textbook (optional but highly recommended) is $24.95 from ARRL but we can get a 25% discount $18.71 if pre-ordered and pre-paid through the instructor. The exam fee is collected at the time the exam is given.

Please remember that proof of completion of FEMA IS 100 and IS 700 will be needed to qualify to take the final exam.

The Cairo NY session dates are:

Saturday, April 26th 2014 & Saturday, May 3rd 2014
9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Greene County Emergency Services (Room TBA)
25 Volunteer Drive
Cairo, NY 12414

There is a local Mc Donald’s, Hannaford’s, CVS, and convenience stores all within a ¼ mile from The Greene County Emergency Service building.

The online course is always an option to obtain the certification individually with a $50 charge for ARRL members/$85 non-members.

Contact me directly at km2o@arrl.net to preregister.  This is necessary so we can make arrangements for the number of exams and texts needed.

As they say on baseball telecasts, "good seats are still available."
