Hi all,

For information, Essex Ham's free online training courses have restarted, and have been updated to support the new RSGB exams.

Courses are free, take place in an online classroom, and require 2-3 hours of study per week. Courses include online lessons, video tutorials, slides and mock tests.

Courses start on the first weekend of each month, with the next dates being: 05 Jan, 02 Feb, 01 Mar, 05 Apr and 03 May.

If you know anyone interested, please direct them to www.essexham.co.uk/train/foundation-online

There is now a revised set of slides available for amateur radio trainers too.

Best regards,

Pete

Now that people can take the UK amateur radio Foundation exam online from their own home, what online training courses are available?

Currently we are aware of two free online Foundation training courses.
If you are running an online course not mentioned here please let us know.
The courses so far are:

• Foundation Online run by Essex Ham
https://www.essexham.co.uk/train/foundation-online/

• GM6DX Foundation licence course

On April 3, RSGB announced that Foundation Practical Assessments have been waived so candidates will not need to do them

Coronavirus: RSGB is introducing remote invigilation for Foundation exams
Foundation Amateur Radio exams in the UK will be able to resume by using remote invigilation, the Practical Assessments will be waived

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak amateur radio exams in the UK ceased in mid-March, the new online system enables them to restart. Candidates will take the Foundation exam in their own home on their PC or Laptop (Windows 7+) or Apple Mac running Mac OS 10.8+. The invigilation is done remotely, there is no need to complete the Practical Assessments.

The RSGB will be ready to receive online bookings from Monday, April 6. The Society says in due course they will consider extending it to the other licence levels.

The price of the exam is unchanged.

The Coronavirus outbreak and the RSGB's introduction of online exams that can be taken at home have led to a surge in demand for free online amateur radio training courses such as that run by Essex Ham

Volunteers from Essex Ham run a completely free online training course for the UK amateur radio Foundation exam.

A record breaking 260 people enrolled on the course that started April 5 with a further 164 waiting to start the next course.

In response to the demand Essex Ham are running an additional course, open to anyone in the UK, starting on April 19.

Essex Ham report an amateur radio Foundation Online training webinar held on April 21 attracted 273 participants
Since the RSGB enabled Foundation exams to be taken online in people's homes there has been a surge of interest in free online amateur radio training courses.
Essex Ham tweeted:
Last night, we ran a live webinar for candidates on our Foundation Online courses. Here are the stats. Loads of great questions, especially about getting started, taking the online exam & first steps into the hobby. Hugely positive comments about @theRSGB online exams. #hamradio
https://twitter.com/EssexHam/status/1252859795389874176
The next Foundation Online course starts on May 3, due to heavy demand it's advisable to register early.

As at the end of April 24 the RSGB had successfully conducted 29 remotely-invigilated online amateur radio Foundation exams in people's homes

The Society reports they are currently doing 10 remote exams per day.

The RSGB President and Exam Quality Manager Dave Wilson M0OBW has been a keen proponent of online exams. He has indicated he would eventually like to see the number done each day increased to 15+.

About 350 exams have been booked to the end of May and several hundred additional Foundation exams are in the pipeline. Given the high demand for Foundation exams it seems unlikely any Intermediate or Full exams could be done before the end of May.
