More Mentors Needed for New ARRL Emergency Communications Course Sessions:

High interest in the recently announced updated ARRL Introduction to Emergency Communications (EC-001) course is prompting a call for additional class mentors to help meet the demand, which ARRL Lifelong Learning Manager Kris Bickell, K1BIC, says "exceeded our projections." As Bickell explains, the course is designed to be interactive, with volunteer mentors guiding each session.

"We appreciate the work of the mentors to make EC-001 an interactive experience for the participants. The real-world emergency communications experience they bring to the course is very important to the learning process," Bickell said. "We look forward to bringing in more mentors to help ARRL expand the reach of this valuable emergency communications training." Bickell has developed a waiting list for prospective EC-001 students, who will be notified as additional sessions are scheduled.

EC-001 mentors should be ARRL members and active, experienced Amateur Radio licensees of General class or higher, and at least 18 years old. Mentors should have experience in public service communication and in Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) activities and come with the recommendation of their Section Managers.

In addition to the EC-001 course, prospective mentors should have completed ICS 100, 200, 700, and 800 https://training.fema.gov/nims/; the FEMA Professional Development Series https://training.fema.gov/is/searchis.aspx?search=pds, and National Weather Service SKYWARN https://www.skywarn.org/ training. Professional experience in emergency response or communication and as a trainer or educator is desirable, with interest or experience in distance learning. Candidates should possess sufficient computer skills and be able to interact with other course students and with other mentors online.
