This course is made available on our website to all ARRL members. It is a self-study course that you may complete at your own pace.
This is not a course which you can easily complete in a weekend – it is not intended to be. If you are currently serving in a leadership role in your local ARES organization or are training to assume more management responsibility, you may want to complete the final assessment for this course and earn the certificate of completion validating your study. Students who successfully complete the curriculum activities and receive their certificates will indeed be ready for leadership roles in situations where lives and property are at stake.
