While this course is totally free to attend. To get your license there is an VEC $15 fee at the time of taking the test and when you pass the FCC charges $35 for an 10 year license.   Students under the age of 18 the VEC license fee is only $5 and the ARRL will reimburse you the $35 FCC charge.

Attendees should buy the study guides before the class and be studying them so the class can be used for a review. This class will just be a review of the question pool to let you understand the questions in the pool.  If you have any question that might be on the test make sure you bring them to class.
