Knox ARES/RACES-CERT training
From Steve KB1TCE Maine Section Emergency Cordinator:
Some of you will remember the training materials that were used and supported in Maine ARES up until around 2010.
The basis for those training materials was the work of Colorado ham Pat Lambert W0IPL and 
they found their way around the USA and also became the basis for the ARRL EC-001 course.
The course material is pretty stable but it has been updated as needed. The most recent update is 2012. 
Pat has allowed the free use of these courses providing that they are used without any associated fees and give proper attribution.
Pat's web page is at http://www.w0ipl.net/ECom/
