Description: Training focused on the Canadian Amateur Radio Operator Certificate with Basic Qualification examination. [ Be sure to set the language selection box in the top right corner of the page when navigating our training site ].
Objectives: Enable the candidate to successfully pass the exam dispensed by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) [Industry Canada prior to 2015]. Certification is not a trivial endeavour. Achieving success is your responsibility alone.
Assessment: The candidate validates his competency with a Question Bank published by the Department. A mark of 80% is a substitute for Morse competency since 2005. The minimal pass mark is 70%.
Resources: You will need to invest tens of hours to study hundreds of concepts, some fairly abstract.
Ideally, your Web browser should support JavaScript to display animations and simulations.
Highly recommended external training aids are built to run on Microsoft Windows® or Linux.
Other information: Certification grants you a call sign (call letters) whose prefix in the province of Quebec is VE2 or VA2 (VE7/VA7 in British Columbia, etc.). This training is an excellent introduction to wireless technology and electronics. This certificate must not be confused with the Restricted Operator Certificate - Maritime (ROC-M) or the Restricted Operator Certificate - Aeronautical (ROC-A).
Learning method: Presentations are as concise as can be with numerous illustrations, a definitive focus is placed on the "need-to-know" material and you can use an external exam simulator (ExHAMiner©) to confirm your progress.
