  Practical  Assessment  

 

All applicants for an Australian amateur radio licence must undertake the practical assessment once to hold a licence. No matter what level licence you undertake as your first licence, you need to complete the practical assessment to be granted your licence.

The exanimation contains 15 Sections and is currently set by the Australian Media and Communications Authority (ACMA).

This exam requires a 100% pass.

Material amended to reflect the new requirements of the Radiocommunications (Amateur Stations) Class Licence
Standard Licence

My recommendation is to sit the advanced exam instead of the standard. The syllabus is slightly different but, for either standard or advanced, a pass in the regulations is required.
The advantage of advanced over standard is that the advanced licence has access to 28 amateur radio bands and the standard has access to 11 amateur radio bands. Power with a standard licence is limited to 100 watts in two modes while the advanced is limited at 400 watts in three modes.
The choice is always yours.
Standard Syllabus Standard syllabus from the Australian Media and Communications Authority (ACMA)
