VECs coordinate the efforts of Volunteer Examiners (VEs) in preparing and administering amateur service operator license examinations. The coordinating VEC screens collected information, resolves all discrepancies, and forwards all required data to the FCC electronically. All VECs are authorized to coordinate examination sessions at any location an examination can be administered. A VEC, however, may choose to limit its area of operation to a particular geographical area.

If you want to locate a Volunteer Examiner (VE) to administer an operator license examination to you or to file other applications for you, such as an application for renewing your license, change of address, or change of name, or if you are an amateur radio operator and would like to be accredited as a VE, Contact any of the VECs below
