The ARRL is surveying its membership regarding which future on-line ARRL
Certification and Continuing Education (C-CE) courses hams would be most
likely to take. The list of possibilities ranges from antennas to VHF 
and UHF operation. The Web-based survey 
<http://www.arrl.org/members-only/cce/ccesurv.html> is now open for 
input. The survey period will end October 27.

"The C-CE program has been very successful," said C-CE Program 
Coordinator Howard Robins, W1HSR, who notes that thousands of hams have 
registered for ARRL's on-line classes since the C-CE program began in 
late 2000. The C-CE program's first offering--selected as a result of 
membership input--was the Level I Amateur Radio Emergency Communications 
course (EC-001). The League now offers three levels in emergency 
communications and expanded course offerings to include Antenna 
Modeling, HF Digital Communication and Satellite Communication.

"Our plans are to make several additional courses available in 2003,"
Robins said. "The survey results will guide the C-CE program in 
providing courses of demonstrated interest to ARRL members."

Members will be asked to rank the various possibilities in terms of the
likelihood that they would take the course if it were offered. The list
includes Antennas 101, Basic Electronics, Trouble Shooting, Test
Equipment, Radio Propagation, VHF and UHF Beyond the Repeater and
Contesting 101.

To learn more, visit the ARRL Certification and Continuing Education Web
page <http://www.arrl.org/cce> and the C-CE Links found there. For more
information, contact Certification and Continuing Education Program
Coordinator Howard Robins, W1HSR, hrobins@arrl.org.

"Contesting 101" could be interesting!!
