The NARTREK Skills Program is an excellent way to get exposed to different facets of the rocketry hobby. NARTREK stands for National Association of Rocketry Training Rocketeers for Experience and Knowledge. It consists of a set of three levels of achievement, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each level has four separate rocketry tasks.
To be eligible for the program:
- You have to be a member of the National Association of Rocketry (It is their program after all).
- You have to have flown a rocket before (not sure about this one).
- Have your own launch equipment. You do not have to use this equipment for your certification launches.
- You must follow the NAR Safety codes and know the basics of the motor impulse coding system. (C6-7, A8-3, etc.)
