Certification

The requirements for a Certificate of Proficiency in amateur radio have changed over the years and no doubt will continue to do so. 

The Basic qualification still allows transmissions above thirty megahertz.

The Basic along with 12 words a minute sending and receiving Morse has recently changed; now only 5 words a minute sending and receiving is required for “All Amateur Band” application.

The Advanced qualification allows the graduate to design and build transmitters. Other than for use in testing procedures, it does not allow “All Amateur Band" transmissions.  Only along with the Morse qualification can "All Amateur Band" privileges be obtained.

 

Several countries around the world no longer require Morse but in its place there have been changes in the Basic Study Course primarily with the purpose of upgrading the technical content.

Certification comes under the jurisdiction of Industry Canada and students wishing to gain credit for whatever level can do so by taking the required exam with an Accredited Examiner.

For information on whom to contact for an exam, check first with your local amateur radio club. (For a current list of your regional and local clubs go to the Radio Amateurs of Canada website.)  Alternatively, if you have any difficulty, contact Charles Leggatt by email or phone (416 486 6025).
