In response to the global pandemic, Radio Amateurs of Canada is once again offering an online Advanced Qualification Amateur Radio Course so that individuals can upgrade their qualifications while continuing to practise social/physical distancing.
With your Advanced Certificate, you can run higher power, operate a remotely-controlled station, obtain operating privileges when travelling overseas, set up repeaters, be the trustee for club stations and even become an Accredited Examiner (AE).
This RAC Advanced Qualification Amateur Radio course is being presented exclusively to RAC Maple Leaf Operator Members – both present and future – and the only cost is the cost of membership.

For more information about becoming a Maple Leaf Operator please visit the RAC Maple Leaf Operator Membership webpage.
Basic Qualification Amateur Radio Course: Stay tuned
In addition to the Advanced Course, a Basic Qualification Amateur Radio Course will also once again be conducted with the assistance of the Annapolis Valley Amateur Radio Club (AVARC) of Nova Scotia. We anticipate that the next Basic course will start in mid-August and are currently setting up the course.
Registration for the Basic course is not yet available and we are not keeping a waitlist. We will be sending out a RAC bulletin as soon as the information becomes available and also posting it on the RAC website.
