The CRES-ARC Volunteer Exam Program — Frequently Asked Questions

Our next exam session will be held starting at 9 AM on Saturday, April 7th, 2018, at the Haubuch Armory, 4094 Sullivant Ave, Columbus. Please note this session will not be held at our normal test site in Reynoldsburg. This exam will be held under the auspices of the Laurel VEC and will be free to all applicants. We do ask our candidates to pre-register for the exam session at and obtain an FRN if they haven't previously done so prior to the exam session. Pre-registration for this session opens on March 8th. And while you're here, please take a moment to review the material on this page. We look forward to serving you on April 7th.

Welcome to the CRES Amateur Radio Club Volunteer Examiner Team's web page for prospective and upgrading hams. The Volunteer Examiner program was created by the Federal Communications Commission to permit specially trained ham radio operators, who donate their time, to administer the amateur radio exams that applicants must pass in order to become a ham themselves or to upgrade their license class. The CRES Amateur Radio Club is one of several ham organizations in the Central Ohio area that sponsor a VE team. We normally give exams three times a year, in April, August, and December, usually on the first or second Saturday of the month. This site attempts to provide answers to those questions frequently asked of us about our exam sessions and the VE program. Be aware that some of the information presented here is specific to our particular program and to the Central Ohio area, and other VE teams may elect to do some things differently.

Thanks for your interest in ham radio and the CRES-ARC VE sessions. Good luck with your studies and your exams!
