Amateur Radio Upgrade Classes and Exams


Each year the Centralia Wireless Association conducts classes to aid radio amateurs in their efforts to upgrade their license class. New entries are also welcome.

Practice exams are available on the Q R Zed web site.


There are many ARRL VEs who are club members which are accredited to administer your exams. When you feel you are ready to take your exam(s), contact the VE team to schedule your exam time.

You may contact Bud or Daisy King by E-mail at WA9U at or by phone at (618) 532-6606.

If an open exam session is scheduled, the time, date, and location will be posted here.

The ARRL VEC exam fee for 2018 is $15.00 (for one attempt at all three license elements).

If a candidate fails an element at an exam session and wants to re-test for the same element, an additional fee will be required.
