What if I have to miss a session? Most students miss one or two sessions for various reasons. This isn't usually a problem, as long as you:
Will the fee still be $100, same as last year? Yes it will. LARC will absorb the additional costs associated with adding 2 more sessions to the course.
Will the same Study Guide be used? Yes, we will still be using the 9th edition of the study guide, which looks like this:
What if I already have the Study Guide? The course fee includes $50 for the Study guide we provide, which is essentially our cost. If you already have the Study Guide, we will reduce the fee by $50.
Is there a yearly renewal fee once I get my ham license? No, your license is yours for life, with no additional fees. However, we'd love to have you join the London Amateur Radio Club, which does have a low yearly membership fee. The first year is free as part of the course.
