Virtual HAM Radio Technician License Test Prep Course
These changing times bring forth concerns about alternative ways to communicate in a disaster/disruption in communications. It is very important for us to build up our community’s communication abilities between friends and family regardless of their geographical location in the World. For this reason, we are offering a two-day virtual HAM Radio Technician License Test Prep Course for you to take in the comfort of your home or office (registration required). This course will help you obtain the license that is required to transmit messages and learn about the practical uses of HAM radio equipment.
Our seasoned instructor, Wayne Greene, will teach via the ZOOM platform while giving everyone a chance to interact and answer questions. He will also provide us with additional tools to prepare for the test.
Once you are ready to take the exam, you have the choice of scheduling an online examination session through any of the approved online volunteer examiner groups or you can reach out to your local amateur radio club to determine if they are available to administer the exam in person. A list of online testing sessions will be provided on the first day of your class.
Upon registration, you will receive a link to order an OPTIONAL study guide to help you prepare for the exam.

Wayne first got interested in radio and wireless technologies in 1975 at the age of 8. His parents had given him his first walkie-talkie set. He was raised on a small family farm in the piedmont area of North Carolina. What fascinated Wayne is that he could talk into his radio and his cousin could hear him on the other side of the farm and vice versa. That fascination never grew old. Wayne earned his first amateur radio license when at 10 years old. Ultimately, his career path continued in wireless technologies. Wayne went into the U.S. Air Force and worked in the electronic warfare field, but was eventually recruited into the Air Force Office of Special Investigations as a technical special agent, supporting criminal and counterintelligence investigations. After a few years, he was brought into the Defense Criminal Investigations, where he finally retired after 34 years of service. Wayne now teaches electronics at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Brunswick, GA. He has several hobbies and, of course, amateur radio is at the top of the list. Wayne also loves inshore fishing, running, and camping. Wayne is married to Betsy and has three totally awesome kids, Lori (15), Bryan (13), and Matthew (12).
