The All-Hazards Radio Operator (RADO) Course is a two-day U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Critical Infrastructure Security Agency (DHS/CISA) course introducing CAP members to a variety of Radio Operator (RADO) concepts including radio etiquette, interoperable communications, dispatch operations and emergency communications procedures. Participants will develop the essential core competencies used during incident response and planned events to perform the duties of the RADO in an all-hazards environment including communications support for public safety, wildland fire, marine, and aviation. The last three days of the week students will work in the Communications Center of NESA to gain the experience needed to complete their SQTR’s for the qualification. There is no test for this course as it is all performance driven.
