Basic and Advanced Courses & Examination

VECTOR training courses prepare students for the Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED, formerly known as Industry Canada) Amateur Radio Operator Certificates with Basic and Advanced Qualifications.

VECTOR runs courses several times each year, and is one of Canada’s most active amateur radio training organizations, training up to 100 students annually with most achieving honours results in the Basic Certificate.

Our next course for the ISED Basic Certificate will be held in March/April 2024.

For those who already hold the Basic Certificate and wish to upgrade your qualification, there will be an ISED Advanced Certificate course in September-October 2024 as well.
