VEC Program

Effective Monday, June 1st, 2020 the Anchorage ARC VEC has resumed normal operations.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON PROCTORS: Amateurs holding Novice and Technician class licenses are NOT eligible to act as proctors through the Anchorage ARC VEC. If the potential proctor holds a General, Advanced or Amateur Extra class license they simply need to complete a proctor application/agreement where they will also attach an ink-signed copy of their OFFICIAL amateur radio license as well as a valid government-issued photo ID.
