What is the Ham Radio Crash Course?

Started by Josh Nass (KI6NAZ) as a YouTube channel, Ham Radio Crash Course (HRCC) has evolved into a rapidly growing community of radio ethusiasts that are excited to grow in the hobby, and help others grow as well.

Ham Radio Crash Course is now home to the HRCC Live Stream, HRCC Concise Videos, HRCC Podcast and Ham Nation Show. You can find more information on the HRCC Discord or HRCC Facebook Group.

The Vision

Ham Radio Crash Course is an inclusive community focused on normalizing ham radio, getting people licensed, having fun with everything the hobby has to offer and keeping the bands alive.

-Josh Nass, KI6NAZ

Who may register for this testing session:

  • Anyone with an interest in obtaining a new Amateur Radio license or upgrading their existing licenses.
  • You may take multiple elements in a single appointment; we just ask that you have studied and are ready to pass.


  • The HRCC VE Team provides exams free of charge via our association with SANDARC VEC.
  • If requested, we will provide exams for minors under age 18 through the ARRL VEC. While they charge $5 for the exam, they will reimburse the FCC application fee with the submission of a form and the call being issued by the FCC.
  • There is a $35 application fee payable directly to the FCC for new licenses after your application is submitted. There are no fees for upgrades. More information will be provided at your exam session.

Next Steps

After you register, you will receive a confirmation email from our testing provider ExamTools with the Zoom link for your session.

  • The ability to use Zoom as the video conferencing platform. (A paid Zoom account is not required).
  • A testing space that is clear of study materials and clutter. This place will also need to be where no one will disturb you during the exam. (Some great examples include: a porch, bathroom, patio, a spare bedroom, and others. Be creative!!!)
