SHARP Amateur Radio

Basic Qualification Amateur Radio Exam Page


This page includes links useful to students studying for the Industry Canada exam for basic amateur radio certification. A four day basic course is offered through the Winnipeg Amateur Radio Club (WARC). Occasionally SHARP is able to host the course at Shaftesbury High School on Saturdays but generally the course runs at the Senior's Club station (old fire hall) on St. Mary's Avenue in St. Vital. Over time we will be adding more study materials including PowerPoint presentations on different topics covered in the basic certification course.


WARC's Basic Short Course Students:


Please download, print and read the file called "The Yellow Folder" prior to the first class. The first class covers Measurement and Basic Electronics Theory (pages 9 - 12) and Regulations (25% of the exam). You should also download and look over the file called RIC-7. It is Industry Canada's basic qualification Exam Question Bank. Your 100 exam questions will be taken from the roughly 1000 questions in this bank. Its over 100 pages long so you will not want to print it but have it handy on a computer for reference. Each question has an answer. Finally, the Industry Canada Exam Generator is an essential tool to help you prepare for the exam. You should not attempt the exam until you are able to score over 80% on the practice exam. Best wishes/73.
