I am interested in getting started in ham "amature" radios. I have been operating CB radio's since 2003 and am looking to take the next step. I know I have to go to classes, take tests to get licensed, but I don't know where to go for these. Any help would be appreciated.

you don't need to go to class, there are online study guides, that is how i passed the test.
The No-Nonsense,Technician Class License Study Guide http://www.kb6nu.com/wp-content/uploads ... _Guide.pdf

the AARL web sight will help you find a test time and date. http://www.arrl.org/licensing-preparation-exams

You do not have to go to classes and can study online or buy books to study from. For me, going to a class was much more successful - I kept putting off studying via the web. I made a contact through a coordinated volunteer effort with CERT and ARES. As a CERT member, I was paired up with a ARES member who worked for a local hospital that puts on free tech licensing classes.

Now this scenario may not work out exactly the same for you but there may some avenues to venture down. See if the local ARES/RACES Chapters hold training nights or maybe if the local hospitals have Emergency Radio teams/services which host community training..

That AARL link is dead. This one might be good: http://www.arrl.org/licensing-education-training
