Next Amateur Radio licence exam date announced

The next Theory Examination for the Amateur Station Licence will be held on Wednesday, 7th July next at 2 p.m. in the ComReg Offices in Dublin and at other centres where warranted by the numbers.

Theory Examinations for the Amateur Station Licence are held twice yearly at the end of June/early July with a repeat examination at the end of September/early October. Under an arrangement with ComReg the IRTS is responsible for setting, organising and correcting the theory examination. The examination is usually held in the ComReg Offices in Dublin but, where the numbers warrant it, examinations can be held at other centres. Places for examinations at the ComReg Offices are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis and will only be reserved on receipt of the examination fee. Intending candidates should forward the appropriate fee to Sean Nolan EI7CD, 12 Little Meadow, Pottery Road, Dunlaoghaire, Co. Dublin in order to reserve a place for the exam.

The fee is 50 Euro or 25 Euro for full-time registered students, repeat candidates and those who are retired, unemployed or have a disability. Cheques and Money Orders should be made payable to the IRTS. When forwarding the exam fee intending candidates should enclose their postal address as well as phone and e-mail contact details. The closing date for applications to sit the examination is announced on each occasion but is usually two weeks before the examination date.

Intending candidates should note that anyone who fails to produce a photo identity on the day of the examination will not be allowed to sit the examination. The photo ID can be a driving licence, a passport, an employment photo identity card or a student card containing a photograph. A national Garda photo ID is also acceptable.

Courses will be conducted during the Spring of 2010 to assist prospective candidates in their preparations for the upcoming exams. The areas where courses will be made available and the contact details for each area below...
