The Fresno Area Mentors and Elmers (FAME) is a coordinated effort between members of the various amateur radio groups around the Central Valley. FAME’s goal is to provide education for new and upgrading hams. We not only provide several educational classes throughout the year, but also mentor new and old hams alike.
Entry-Level Technician classes are offered several times a year for those who are interested in obtaining their Amateur Radio license. Classes are offered free of charge, however you will benefit from purchasing a study manual. Please see below or click the following link to see our upcoming classes: Upcoming Ham Classes.
If you find the CARP FAME classes helpful, please consider making a donation to help offset the costs of putting on the class sessions.

This is the first level license class designed to help prepare you to take the Amateur Radio FCC exam. This class is not mandatory but is a great way to learn for the exam and hear real world experience. This is not a class to learn to program radios.
Some home work will be required (Homework) as to help prepare students for the test and also shorten the hours in class. Those that attend ALL CLASSES in the past have a high percentage of passing their first time.
