Ares Training


ARES has developed the Basic Emergency Communications material based on the ARRL EC-001 class. This material is not intended to replace the ARRL classes but simply to ensure that all ARES members issued a COBB ARES ID have met a basic level of proficiency. 

Additional training material below includes presentations from previous meetings and other useful documents.
