BARK uses Gordon West/ W5YI Group Teaching Method
rather than the ARRL
  • W5YI Group- requires 18 hours of instruction.
    This method teaches the test and provides a
    limited amount of in depth knowledge. The theory
    is that you will learn more once you get on the
    air.
  • ARRL (Amateur Radio Relay League)- requires 60
    hours of instruction. Lots of in depth class work.

How to study to ensure passing exam
  • Come to class. Participate. Ask questions!
  • Study outside of class
  • The exam will be taken from questions in the pool
  • Questions are discussed in class
  • Take practice exams online
  • How class will be run
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Background material is discussed in class
  • Questions from the pool at end of each section
  • Questions from class
  • There is no such thing as a stupid question.
  • If you dont understand, youre probably not
    alone
  • Material is second nature to the instructors
    they may not realize that theyre not speaking
    English and most of the Instructors are not
    professional Educators
  • Additional help is available from Elmers if
    needed
