Basic NET Unit 9 - Comms Training

Every NET volunteer's basic training includes an overview of radio communications: how radio is used, the different kinds of radio used by NET, and how to get trained on radio. This radio overview is Unit 9 of Basic NET training.

This training unit was added to Basic NET Training in early 2014. Completing unit 9 is also a required step towards ARO certification.

A volunteer who has not received Unit 9 can either sit in on the class the next time it is offered at Basic NET Training or a volunteer can review the study material here and complete the quiz linked below. Doing so will qualify a volunteer as having completed Unit 9.

What to read to prepare for the quiz:

UNIT 9 QUIZ: After you have reviewed the class packet and Section 900 of the NET Guidelines, you are ready to complete the online quiz. Before submitting the form, select "Send me a copy of my responses" at the bottom. If you pass, print or forward the confirmation to your RTL if you are planning to complete ARO training.
