HARES Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced Training Courses

Our three registered Lead Instructors Tim G1KFB, Colin M0LTD and Mike M0MPF ably assisted by other club members who help with tutoring, are keen to  introduce new students to Ham Radio and help them to obtain their licences. Recently 28 Foundation, 16 Intermediate and 10 Advanced licence passes were obtained, many of these were amateurs from nearby clubs which has increased the camaraderie between members. 
 
Training is free to members of the club but a charge of 15 is made for non members (which includes one years membership of the club). Exam fees have been increased recently by RSGB to 27.50 for Foundation 32.50 for Intermediate and 37.50 for Full licence. Leicester Radio Society also run courses locally.
