What does a Volunteer Examiner (VE) do?
Volunteer Examiners (VEs) are licensed radio amateurs holding a General Class license or higher, who offer their time to administer the FCC licensing tests. Learn how you can become a VE associated with the ARRL Volunteer Coordinator office (VEC) by reviewing our Volunteer Examiner Manual.
ARRL also authorizes our VEs to conduct exam sessions for ARRL's Amateur Radio Emergency Communications Course. An additional registration with ARRL's Continuing Education Program is required. Learn More
