Greetings Coastside hams,

As part of our ongoing commitment to training we are offering a course for CERT ham radio operators. This is a hybrid course that will be presented on Zoom and over ham radio.

      an overview of where you fit in the CERT communications hierarchy

      practice joining the CERT ARES radio net using your radio

      practice in basic message handling using your radio

      practice in logging

      answers to your questions

      preparation for the Coastside Great ShakeOut – see

Who should take this course? Licensed ham radio operators who may volunteer for their neighborhood CERT radio communications, or would like to learn more about the role and responsibilities of the CERT ham operator.

Where is this course being held? At home via Zoom and on the air using your ham radio.

When is this course being held? Saturday, September 9, 2023 - 10:00 to approx. 12:00.

There is a limit to the number of students that we can handle at one time.

Students will receive an email with links to the student guide and simple instructions to get prepared for the class. We will be providing some technical assistance, beforehand, so that students can test their gear and confirm that it works.
