3 The FCC requires email addresses.  Phone numbers are optional, but important.  They may be used by the VE Team to expedite processing if we have questions for you.

 

 

4 It is highly recommended that you obtain your FRN before the exam session.  Bring a printout of it to the session or be able to display it on a smartphone or other device.  An FRN can be obtained on the CORES web site.  An email address is required.  The VE Team can not obtain an FRN for you.  If you need help, the VE Team may be able to assist you in obtaining one at your exam session if you have access to your email.

Please do not send us your Social Security Number.
