FCC: Virtual VE testing is permitted

With in-person Volunteer Examiner (VE) testing canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) stated in a Public Notice dated April 30, 2020 that VEs can administer tests in a remote manner.

The FCC grants VE Coordinators leeway as to how tests are administered and proctored. This notice is good news for those wanting to sit for an amateur radio exam, but were not able to do so because of the pandemic.
