ARES Task Book

ARES® Task Book

As an ARES organization. The Washoe County ARES uses the Task Book as way for our members to stay up to date with training and to record their progress as they are completed. Through recommended and optional courses and exercises.

The Task Book is a working document that enables those WCARES communicators to participate in the ARRL training plan to track and document their training. As they are completed towards the various levels of increasing proficiency.  The Task Book should contain all training plan items, completion dates and sign-offs as the WCARES communicator works through the Task Book. The Washoe County ARES communicator is responsible for maintaining the Task Book and having it with them during training and assignments. 

If you have questions about WCARES’ implementation of the Task Book, please contact the Washoe County EC John Phillips via email at: or Washoe County AEC Arlan Robinson at
