From: RAC Headquarters Date: June 24, 2001 Subject: RAC Announces Certificate of Proficiency in Morse Code To encourage Morse Code proficiency, Radio Amateurs of Canada now offers a Certificate of Proficiency in Morse Code, to be issued by the RAC Awards Manager, in recognition of candidate Morse code proficiency at speeds of 12, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40 WPM. A new dated certificate will be issued with each new 'qualification' earned. The examination and certificate are also available in the French language. A charge of $5 is assessed to cover printing, handling and postage costs. Testing may be performed by any Accredited Examiner holding a current Industry Canada Letter of Authority who voluntarily chooses to participate in this program. Certificate testing is for proficiency in Morse Code reception using the Industry Canada RIC-1 standards. The examination may be generated by any of several software programs or audio tapes prepared using such a program, using suitable text selected by the Accredited Examiner. Accredited Examiners may also authorize the certificate application form for candidates who produce an original Advanced Amateur, First Class or Second Class Commercial, or military Morse Code qualification certificate issued by the Canadian government to that candidate, for the receiving speed shown on that certificate. Details, software and forms downloads are available on the RAC website: http://www.rac.ca/morseprog.htm
