Ham Cram is a guided self-study course followed by a class or classes that teach everything needed to earn or upgrade an FCC radio amateur license.  We offer Hamcram sessions designed to enable you to earn your first license (technician) or upgrade your technician license to a general license.

Our Technician HamCram training regimen includes self-study course preparation materials, fine-tuning your learning with a day in our classroom, followed by testing at our in-house test session the same day.

Our General HamCram training regimen is similar to the Technician training approach except that there will be multiple meetings to review materials and fine tune your knowledge.  VE testing takes place at the last class meeting.

We usually run two HamCram courses each year -- one in the spring and one in the fall.

If you are under the age of 16, we ask that a parent bring you to the HamCram session and sign a permission slip indicating their approval for you to take the course.  We would like for parents to stay for the course, however if that is not possible we ask that parents leave a contact phone number at which they can quickly be reached in case of an emergency.

Persons under the age of 18 who participate in HamCram will receive a free membership in the North Fulton Amateur Radio League!
