PR Courses

To make your group or club grow, people need to know you are there!

This course is designed to give hams a quick overview in public relations activities. It uses the skills of experts in various aspects of public relations to provide volunteer Public Information Officers with the basic skills and expectations that a PIO needs to know to be effective in their home region. PR-101 covers everything from the basic news release to Web sites and video work.

The materials can also be used as a handbook - a reference to keep with you that comes in handy!

Special sections cover emergency communications and the media - what Amateur Radio wants the world to know and how to position it for best results.

The PR101 course is conveniently set-up for you to complete the course and final exam on your own schedule. Participants who successfully complete the final exam will be able to view and print a certificate of completion. Graduates are recorded in our student database as having completed ARRL PIO training. (Note: ARRL members can view their student record when logged into the ARRL website.)
