As the Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA) has not been successful in it’s tender to provide Amateur Radio Assessment and callsign management services to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), we have suspended all plans for Foundation Courses and other Assessments. We are awaiting clarification as to what the new system will entail and how or whether we can be involved in the process. Watch this space.

The Foundation licence is a quick way to get on the air for those without any previous experience in radio or electronics. The club runs training sessions for this licence quarterly subject to demand. Each session requires a single weekend which includes an exam on Sunday afternoon. Successful candidates will be assisted to apply for their licence immediately. Details of this licence can be found on the WIA web site under “Become a Radio Amateur”.
