Ohio ARES Tier I Certificates
  December 20th, 2017

From the Ohio Section News

I’ve gotten a lot questions from all of you about our Tiered system and those that have completed your 4 NIMS courses (IS 100, 200, 700 & 800), is there a certificate for getting these courses in and completed and entered in to our statewide database.

I now can say YES, there is.

Go to: http://arrl-ohio.org/SEC/Tier-I-Form.html and fill in your name and call sign and I’ll email you back a really neat looking certificate that shows you are an Ohio ARES TIER I member. It’s frameable and, since it will come to you electronically, if you have a smartphone you can  download it into your smartphone and keep it with you wherever you go.

Now I do want to tell you all that this is for the Tier I membership only. Your application for the certificate will be checked against the statewide database. I hope that this will help entice all of you Tier II members to get those courses completed and the certificates to me and to your Emergency Coordinator.

Since we have well over 600 members that are Tier I, I’m sure that there will be a big rush to get your certificate. Please be patient, I’ll make sure that you get your certificate, but it may take a couple of days to get through the rush. Also, like most of our forms that you fill out, you will get a copy of the form emailed back to you as a receipt that it did get into the system, so PLEASE make sure that you type your email correctly so that
it won’t go to cyberspace!

Oh, just one more thing, I know that we set 625 as the next goal, and we are getting real close to that mark. So,if you haven’t given me your certificates yet, you could be that person that receives the ARRL ARES Vest!!

Are you sure that you are on the list? Make sure, here’s the link to the listing:
