VE testing is now at Life EMS
Our testing location is at the Life EMS Education Centre (1050 Fuller Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503), upstairs in Classroom B (map).
Examinations will be held the second Friday of each calendar month. Registration begins at 6:00pm and testing follows at 6:30pm.
Starting April 19, 2022 the FCC has imposed a $35 fee. Information regarding this can be found here. This fee, if it applies, will be paid to the FCC, not us. We do not collect money for this. This fee, for the purposes of our testing, only applies to new licenses. After passing, the FCC will contact you via email to pay the fee.
Before coming to the testing session we need you to complete two items, Obtaining an FRN and Filling out a Form.
