Amateur Radio (ham radio) is more than just a hobby to many. People from all walks of life gather together in clubs, events and community service. One thing in common is an enjoyment of communicating with others using ham radio equipment.
The Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) has more excellent information about what ham radio and how to get your license. This page provides a few links to those resources as well as local classes and exams (see below).

Visit https://www.youtube.com/ and search for Amateur Radio Lessons (or) Amateur Radio Exam Prep. A couple that looked promising when last visited were Dave Casler and Ham Radio Crash Course. However, since everyone has a different learning style, check out several of them and use the one you like best.
