Training is something that should never end, whether your a new comer or an old timer.

Hoodview Amateur Radio Club is committed to helping you learn.

Training takes many forms at HARC. We provide structured classes so that it becomes easy for you to pass your Technician, General, or Extra class exams. General and Technicians classes are held at Mt Hood Community College. We also have training hosted in homes to provide a more rapid response to your training needs. In addition, you will find many Elmers, people willing to pull along side, to help you learn.
