Technician Class Session #4
We held the fourth and final session of our Technician class tonight at Memorial Hospital. We covered subelement #8, Emergency and Public Service Communications, and Subelement #10, Electrical and RF Safety. We then had a Q&A session, a review session, and took a few practice tests. All of the students are doing very well and are ready for the exam on Saturday. Having four classes instead of three proved to be very valuable. The pace we kept was perfect. We covered everything on the test and we were able to devote a bit more time explaining concepts and principles behind all the facts. The Memorial classrooms are awesome with the overhead projector, the whiteboard, and the WiFi Internet Access. The students are already asking for a "Now that we have our license, how do we operate?" session. I'm sure we can put something together soon to help them get on the air. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching this class and am already looking forward to the next one. It was great working with Kevin, WD0GFG. And of course I appreciate all of Steve, K4SDJ's, help with the administration and logistics.
