     The ARRL's Certification and Continuing Education (CCE) program 
offers a variety of course in Amateur Radio topics.  These include 
license courses, ARES courses, and technical courses about topics like
electronics, antenna modelling, antenna design and construction, and 


     Two courses listed in this month's QST caught my eye, as they are 
not about a technical topic or ARES. EC-005 "HF Digital Communications" and
EC-008 "Life Beyond the Repeater" are both primarily about operating.  I 
wonder could/should there be a CCE course for radio contesting?  The other 
two operating classes are typically 20-25 hours of instruction over
8 weeks, including required activities (i.e. getting on the air or 
installing and using software, etc.), at a cost of $65-95.  Would there be
demand for a course like this?  Is this the next logical step beyond 
Contest University at Dayton?
