Prerequisites, Course Description, and Course Materials:

This class will be held in the Sheriff's Auditorium in the County Sheriff's building at 55 W. Younger Ave. in San Jose. Park in the large lot across the street from the building. Do not park in the smaller lot next to the building..

What You Need To Bring:

  • HT with plenty of battery for 3 hours. You should be able to operate on extra low power, so it shouldn't be a problem.
  • Minimum of earbud or headphones, so we don't bother others with radio chatter. A headset (headphones with boom microphone) is recommended for best audio quality (hearing and speaking). If you come without a headset or earbud you will be asked to leave.
  • Course slides: Bring your own copy of the course slides--either printed or on a tablet or PC.
  • Printed copies of all other course materials (see the course description page for all course materials - link above). The in-class exercises will require you to write on the various forms.
  • Water, as you desire.
