License Exams

Our VE team belongs to the ARRL VEC. Exams are given on the third Tuesday of the month, 6:30 pm by pre-registration only. The current fee is 15.00, and applicants need a photo ID, and copies of your current license or CSCE, if applicable. The FCC now requires all applicants to have a FRN and provide a email address. Click here to pre-register, or call the team liaison, Jamie Tolbert at 814-337-2315.

Instructions on obtaining an FRN are available here: https://www.fcc.gov/wireless/support/universal-licensing-system-uls-resources/getting-fcc-registration-number-frn
