The Task Book is a working document that enable those ARES communicators electing to participate in the ARRL training plan, to track and document their training plan elements as they are completed toward the various levels of increasing proficiency.
As an ARES organization, WCARES will be using the Task Book for members who wish to advance their knowledge of emergency communications.
