CEC-Corps VE Team

The CEC-Corps Volunteer Examiner (VE) Team, expertly led by Bob KZ1B, Damian KC3SWR, Bob N1UVO, and Erin ND7B, is dedicated to providing an innovative and fully online, video-supervised examination process. Our approach is grounded in fostering a friendly and positive environment to facilitate efficient and successful testing experiences. Adherence to our detailed instructions is key to ensuring a smooth and effective examination for all candidates.

1. Exam Application

 When you register for the exam over at hamstudy.org you will be generating a 605 application, you will receive a link to your specific exam.

(Your name on the exam registration must match the name on your FCC license or FRN if applying for a new license. Name changes require separate documentation to be submitted to the FCC.)

2. Federal Registration Number (FRN)

  This must be submitted on the exam application. If you do not have  an FRN number, you will be able to register for one when you register  for the exam. You can also do it yourself by visiting the FCC’s Registration page and clicking “Register for an FRN”.
