We have temporarily suspended the OCARC VE testing due to the social distance requirements in place. The ARRL is looking hard at remote testing, but hasn’t indicated when they might approve such a method. Remote testing would require a video connection such as Zoom or similar feature. So far, the ARRL position is that remote testing looks promising.
OCARC is currently considering alternative testing methods that would conform to New York “Pause”. As soon as it is practical, we will announce a testing procedure. In the meantime, continue your study and testing currently available on line.
Please check back to this OCARC website frequently for the latest information. We realize how anxious you might be to earn your first license or upgrade, and we are frustrated with the restrictions in place as well.
