Lifelong Learning Program

Lifelong Learning:


ARRL’s Lifelong Learning program will offer a variety of learning opportunities for new, current and prospective amateur radio operators.

The focus will be on creating an amateur radio learning "hub" that provides instructional topics for a range of users, including recently licensed amateurs looking for help getting started, experienced operators seeking to expand their skills, and non-licensed individuals wanting to learn more about ham radio.

Amateur radio enthusiasts will be able to explore a variety of helpful resources and tips, including the following:

  • Getting started: helping new hams get active after they get their license;
  • Emergency communications: getting involved with local emergency operations and public service opportunities;
  • Building & making: learning how to experiment and build your own equipment;
  • Personal communications: learning how to operate, set up a station, and communicate with others

Additional Educational Services:

The department will continue to support the following educational services, including those offered through the Education & Technology Program (ETP):

  • Teacher's Institute: ARRL's Teacher's Institute is a week-long workshop for classroom teachers to learn basic (TI-1) and advanced (TI-2) wireless technology principles for use in their classrooms, and to supplement their current STEM / STEAM curriculum;
  • ARISS: support ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) activities by schools or educational groups, and supply a backup station upon request;
  • License instruction: provide instructional materials for volunteer instructors who teach license classes;
