14. ARES Task Books

Some of you already know that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has published task books for people seeking certification as Communication Technicians (COM-T) and Communications Leaders (COM-L) under the Incident Command System.

Well, the American Radio Relay League has now produced an ARES Standardized Training Plan Task Book to certify ARES members.  It lists optional and required training and experiences at the three current levels of ARES membership.

Two versions of the task book is now available for download on the ARRL website.  For your copy, go to www.arrl.org/ares .
