 There will be no charge for the class itself but at the end of the course we will be offering an Volunteer Examination Testing session so you can get your FCC Technician class license and there is a $15 fee for taking the test. The  test consist of just 35 questions.  We recommend picking up the ARRL study guide “ARRL Ham Radio License Manual 3rd Edition”  which retails for $29.95 but you can find it cheaper if you look around. The book is not only a good study guide it is a good reference book also. At the end of the book is the FCC question pool so you will be able to view all the questions that will be on the test. If you pick up an used book make sure it has the question pool dated after July 1, 2014.
