The ACMA is consulting on new approaches to the way that amateur radio operator qualifications are conferred.
The current arrangements have been in place since 2009 and are due to expire in February 2019.
The ACMA is contemplating three possible approaches to how amateur radio qualifications are conferred in the future. The ACMA is also considering the establishment of a Syllabus Review Panel to ensure that the amateur syllabus remains fit for purpose.
