3. 2020 AUXCOMM course

The United States Department of Homeland Security will once again offer the three day Auxiliary Communications, or AUXCOMM, course in conjunction with Hamvention 2020. AUXCOMM is only available to licensed Amateur Radio Service licensees who meet a list of prerequisites and submit proof to the DHS by April 15th.

The Hamvention 2020 AUXCOMM course will take place May 12-14, 2020 at the Beavercreek Township Fire Department Community Room. Only 30 hams are selected for training prior to Hamvention each year, so if you are interested get started on meeting the requirements as soon as possible.

AUXCOMM students are trained to integrate into the National Response Framework, assisting DHS Communications Leaders and Communications Technicians at major incidents. To learn more go to the following Hamvention page: https://hamvention.org/auxcomm-training-hamvention-week/
