Volunteer Examiner Coordinator (VEC) System

Gateway to the Amateur Radio service

The FCC created the VEC system to provide initial licensing examination for prospective new hams and upgrade examination opportunities for those already licensed. The FCC authorized these VECs to oversee the work of their certified Volunteer Examiners (VEs) and serve as a liaison between applicants and the FCC. Those interested in becoming a VE should contact at least one of these VEC organizations. Examination locations are found throughout the U.S.
