About the Education Interest Group

The Education Interest Group is dedicated to furthering the educational activities of the club. It is meant to be a support organization rather than to include everyone who might want to teach or tutor. This means that we aim to provide times, places, equipment, and help to those wanting to offer an educational program to our members or to the public on behalf of the club.


Classes to assist you in your preparation for amateur licenses are held periodically. ARCA is one of several clubs and organizations in the Bay Area that offer such classes. Contact the club to determine upcoming schedule.

Shop Night

Shop nights are usually scheduled the first Monday of the month (check the ARCA home page to confirm schedule). They consist of members bringing in tools, parts, and test equipment, so that they can work on projects together. This gives people a chance to use test equipment they may not own, and provides a chance to learn new skills.

Members and guests use tools at their own risk. Minors may use tools only under the supervision of a parent or guardian willing to assume all responsibility for the safety and conduct of that minor.
