New ARRL Emergency Communications Courses 1 April 2024

We  will be releasing the first 2 new EmComm courses April 1.  Basic EmComm and Intermediate EmComm will be live in the ARRL Learning Center April 1.  With the new courses being released the legacy courses will be removed April 1.  Anyone who is currently enrolled in EC-001 or EC-016 will need to complete these courses by April 1 to receive credit for them.  We hope to have Advanced EmComm and ARES Leadership courses complete by early summer.

Community Service Events

The ARRL has changed it’s ARES Reporting categories for monthly reports

Community Service Event (CSE) is the new term for Amateur Radio support to parades, marathons, walks, etc.

Public Service Event (PSE) is now used for assistance given to Served Agencies such as EMA, Police, Fire, etc.

So,  for example, support to the Xenia Marathon will be a CSE

Support for agencies during the Total Eclipse will be a PSE

As time goes on we will be updating this website to match the new terminology.
