Read through this, take a couple of practice exams, and you’ll be ready to go.
In our experience, the Technician exam is easy enough that it’s probably worth your while to study up for the General exam as well. You have to take the former before the latter, but there’s nothing stopping you from taking them all in one sitting. (General gets you a lot more international shortwave frequencies, so it’s at least worth a shot.)

The US Technician licence can be considered equivalent to the UK Foundation. Holders are permitted to build their own transmitters, operate Maritime Mobile and have their own repeaters. They can run 200 watts output in four HF bands and 1,500 watts output and all amateur VHF, UHF and Microwave bands.
