Many people start their involvement in Amateur Radio by finding a local club or established Hams that mentor or "Elmer" newcomers. Newcomers also often study independently by utilizing an Internet online study and licensing pre-testing course. Books or other materials are also available. Elmering has been going on in Amateur Radio for over a hundred years and is going strong today and tomorrow.

The efficiency of the Internet online study system and its ability to provide the Elmer with access to student progress information is wonderful.

Established amateurs who help newcomers are often referred to as "Elmers", as coined by Rodney Newkirk, W9BRD. Today, mentors or "Elmers" can quickly set up a newcomer student with an online course and monitor progress, tutoring and motivating the student as needed so a new Ham is quickly on the air. Elmers also can supply loaner radio gear so student can learn the jargon.

Mentors or "Elmers" will often arrange loaner radio equipment so the student can scan and listen while studying and be ready for QSOs on the air when licensed. These established Hams will usually guide the newcomers in choosing the right equipment for the new Ham's needs.

Radio equipment suppliers now can, through this "Elmer" mentoring system sponsor their prospective customers to licensing.
