IMPORTANT: THIS REGISTRATION PAGE IS *ONLY* FOR THE GLAARG-VEC REMOTE EXAM SESSIONS GIVEN ACROSS THE INTERNET — IT IS NOT FOR THE ARRL-VEC IN-PERSON VE SESSIONS. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE FOLLOWING THE CORRECT REGISTRATION AND FEE PAYMENT FOR THE RIGHT KIND OF SESSION YOU USING FOR YOUR EXAM.
The Lake Washington Ham Club sponsors ham radio exam sessions across the Internet at various times. Our sessions use a combination of the Zoom meeting client (for candidate viewing) and the ExamTools.org website (for exam administration). Pre-registration and pre-payment of the exam fee (via PayPal) is required. We do not accept registrations or payments at the exam session itself.
The first step in the exam session registration process is either search for any online exam session by going here: http://www.hamstudy.org/sessions/online (for all online exam sessions) or searching for a session offered by our team directly via: http://www.hamstudy.org/sessions/AE7TD. Register for one of our sessions online. We will validate your registration and then send you an email to come to this page and pay your exam fee using PayPal.
If you have any questions about how the remote examination process works, how to prepare your computer and exam room for when you take your exam, etc. then our detailed (very detailed) rules and instructions are available here: https://bit.ly/LWHC-OnlineExamInstructions.
The registrar will tell you to make your PayPal payment. Use this web page to make your payment. Important: DO NOT PAY YOUR FEE UNTIL THE REGISTRAR HAS TOLD YOU TO. You must first be re-registered before we can accept your payment. Important: the registration process is not complete until your exam fee payment is complete. If you register for an exam slot without paying your exam fee then you will be turned away at the exam session. In addition your slot would have been wasted because another prospective ham could be licensed because the slot was filled.
GLAARG-VEC Exam fees are waived for the following candidates:
- Youth 18 years of age or under
- Students with a current student ID
- Active duty military
- First responders
- GLAARG-accredited VEs upgrading from General to Extra
If you feel that you qualify to have your exam fee waived, instead of paying via PayPal, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a 2-3 sentence supporting statement.
Once you PayPal payment is processed the Registrar will email you a final commitment for the exam session. One day prior to the exam session you will be emailed information about the Zoom meeting.
