We're setting up a club on the SS John W. Brown K8JWB.
Two crew members let their license lapse.
How can I get them grandfathered back in if possible without retaking the test?

We were also going to do an on ship class for more people so ARRL info is very helpful on the site.

FCC Rule 97.505(a) offers partial credit to an examinee that has an expired General, Advanced, or Extra license. If an applicant held a General or Advanced license, and has proof, the FCC will afford credit for the General (Element 3) written exam only. If an applicant held an Extra license, and has proof, the FCC will afford credit for the General (Element 3) and Extra (Element 4) written exams. At VE exam sessions it is the applicant (not the VEs or coordinating VEC) who is responsible for supplying the evidence of holding valid expired license credit.
