ARRL-accredited Volunteer Examiners

Volunteer Examiners accredited by a Volunteer Examiner Coordinator (VEC) conduct amateur radio license and upgrade tests.

Testing schedules for Polk County can be viewed on the Des Moines Radio Amateurs' Association (DMRAA) website.

Schedules elsewhere in Iowa can be viewed on each of the Coordinator's websites:

All candidates must bring $15 and a photo ID. Current license holders that are upgrading must provide a photocopy of their current license (not returnable).

Those who have recently qualified or upgraded, but whose license has not yet been received from the FCC, must also bring the original and a photocopy of their CSCE from that previous test.
