Amateur Radio Classes

The La Verne CERT program has a licensed and ARRL-registered instructor who offers classes in amateur radio communications for the Technician (beginner) and General and Extra class upgrade licenses.  These classes are FREE for members of La Verne CERT and other local CERT programs, or those currently enrolled in a local CERT basic training course.  The fee is $20 for non-CERT members (100% of proceeds donated to La Verne CERT 501(c)3 fund).  To sign up or request information please complete the form below.

Radio communications are essential during a disaster when other communications systems are down, and to supplement FRS local communications.
