Mike and Key ARC VE Team Online Exam Session
Mike and Key Amateur Radio Club Examination Team Video Supervised Exams
We have been having too many no-shows which prevents other folks from getting their license exam. Please don't signup for one of our sessions if you might not show up. Make sure you read the rest of the notes here.
Each online exam team has their own policies and procedures, make sure you have Read and understand the requirements for taking an online exam from us. For example, we will allow multiple exam elements if you tell us ahead of time so we can schedule your slot properly. After you have registered, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting the multiple exams you want to take at a particular session.
After you register for one of our sessions, you will receive an email from PayPal in a day or so requesting payment. IF YOU DON'T SEE THIS EMAIL WITHIN 2 DAYS OF REGISTERING, CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER. We respond 100% to all registrations but some people seem to not be seeing these emails.
You MUST PAY THE FEE within 24 hours of receipt of that email or you will be de-registered to make room for someone else.
Multiple Registrations not Allowed
Please do not register for multiple exam sessions (with ours or other VE teams) with the intention of missing later sessions once you pass at an earlier session: By doing so you are denying other candidates the opportunity to register and generating extra work and lost time for the VEs. We are all volunteering our time to get you licensed.
This Exam in ONLINE Only
You will be assigned to a 30-minute slot starting somewhere between 6:00PM and 8:00 PM Pacific time. Actual times may vary depending on prior candidates' progress, so plan accordingly. We may "seat" you up to 15 minutes early or quite a bit later. You'll need to hang out in a Zoom waiting room during this time.
