Licensing Classes & OARC VE Test Sessions

VE test sessions are your opportunity to become a ham, or upgrade your current license. Exam sessions are held in Ogden every few months, usually the first Wednesday in February, June, and October. Other sessions are held often in the region. It is possible to find a test session every month somewhere in northern Utah or southeastern Idaho.
