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%.
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).
Description: This lesson covers operating procedures: e.g., calling and answering, emergency traffic and signal reports.

Fin 2020, ISDE a abrogé les frais d'examen à leurs bureaux puisqu'ils ne dispensent des examens que dans des "circonstances exceptionnelles". La Banque de Questions est en voie de révision. Souvenez-vous que les frais n'ont *jamais* été de 5$.

Till late 2020, the fee for an examination at ISED was $20. As they conduct exams only in "exceptional circumstances", that fee has been rescinded. The Question Bank is being revised to reflect that change. Please just remember that the fee was *never* $5.
