ARRL's Online EmCom Course in Limbo

The ARRL suspended registrations April 30 for its course, "Introduction to Emergency
Communications," after being notified by the course's online platform provider that it was shutting down. According to the ARRL, "fiscal challenges" facing Connecticut and its state college system forced Charter Oak State College to dissolve the Connecticut Distance Learning Consortium as of July 1. People who signed up for the course set to begin on May 30 will receive refunds. The League says it is looking for a new host site and is using this opportunity to develop new course content as well.
