VE Session Counts

If you’re an ARRL Volunteer Examiner interested in seeing how many ARRL exam sessions you’ve taken part in, you can find the answer here!

You’ll be able to access a list showing the total number exam sessions that each ARRL Volunteer Examiner has conducted. The listings are first by state and then in alphanumeric call sign order (call area number, then suffix letters). The state where an individual VE record is located is based on the address that we have on file as their official VE address.

The VE Session Counts page recognizes the accomplishments of more than 35,000 accredited ARRL Volunteer Examiners. The individual session totals are also a fun way for VEs to keep track of their participation. Only ARRL Volunteer Examiners’ accreditation status and participation can be confirmed via this page.

The ARRL Volunteer Exam Coordinator wants to thank all of our VEs for giving so much of their time and expertise to this important job.

The Amateur Service Volunteer Examiner Coordinator (VEC) System was established in the early 1980s to replace a Federal system that, due to budget cuts, threatened the future of Ham Radio. Through the efforts of ARRL, Senator Barry Goldwater (K7UGA SK) and others, the VEC system was created to ensure the ability for the Amateur Service to continue to grow and prosper.

Recently celebrating 30 years of service, the VEC system today enjoys a reputation high in integrity, and serves the FCC as a shining example of the successes of a privatized system--a system that FCC often refers to as a template as further privatization is sought within FCC.

This page has been established1 to share by State a summary of the accomplishments2 of the 35,000-plus current and actively accredited ARRL Volunteer Examiners3. Recognizing that each exam session requires at least three Volunteer Examiners and an average time commitment of 2-4 volunteer hours or more per person, the thousands of hours these VEs have afforded their local communities is extraordinary!

As you review these listings, should you recognize a call sign of one of our many dedicated volunteers, we hope you will take an opportunity in the future to thank the volunteer for his or her contributions to the VEC program.

Any errors or omissions should be reported to the ARRL VEC.
