THE CLUB CONDUCTS AMATEUR RADIO ASSESSMENTS

Courses are currently not conducted; we can provide you with various materials and information on training pathways.

Assessments can be arranged by appointment on the following:

  • Practical Exam
  • Foundation Written Exam
  • Standard Written Exam
  • Advanced Written Exam
  • Regulations Written Exam

 

Foundation Licence:

This is the basic level licence, to obtain this licence you will need to pass a 25 multiple choice written exam and a hands-on practical assessment,

The pass mark for the written exam is 70% and time allowed is 30 minutes,

You must however pass 100% of the practical component (it’s not as difficult as it sounds)

This is an excellent pathway into the hobby, the licence enables the candidate to transmit on a restricted set of frequencies with a restricted power output. Equipment is relatively cheap and easy to obtain, joining a club will enable you to get more practical tips and mentoring on the hobby.

Standard Licence:

If the candidate has passed the practical assessment, then they need to pass the Standard Written Exam and the Regulations Exam. If the practical has not been passed, the candidate will need to sit that also. This licence allows the candidate to transmit on a few more frequencies than the Foundation Licence and to increase the power out on some bands.

To obtain a standard licence you will need to pass

  • a 50 question theory multiple choice written exam pass mark is 70% and time allowed is 60 minutes,
  • a 30 question regulations multiple choice written exam pass mark is 70% and time allowed is 30 Minutes,

If you have not already passed a practical assessment you will be required to pass this also.

Advanced Licence:

A candidate must pass the Advanced Written exam as well as the Regulations exam. If the practical assessment has not been passed, the candidate will also have to do the practical exam. This licence allows the operator to transmit on all available Amateur Radio frequencies with the maximum allowable power for each mode and band.

The Advanced Licence is the top-level exam to pass this you will need to pass,

  • a 50 question theory multiple choice written exam pass mark is 70% and time allowed is 90 minutes,
  • a 30 question regulations multiple choice written exam pass mark is 70 and time allowed is 30 Minutes.
    (If you hold a standard licence and you are upgrading to Advanced you do not need to sit the regulations again),

If you have not already passed a practical assessment you will be required to pass this also.
