Yes. There are various groups in the area that also provide amateur radio examinations that are not related to the PVVET and/or Laurel VEC. So you if you are ready to take an exam, please visit the other sources. Please note that fees will most likely apply with other VEC’s and groups.
Laurel VEC web page – You can find other Laurel sponsored examinations using their website.
ARRL’s “Find an Exam” web page – A lot of people will advertise their examinations through the American Radio Relay League. They currently have the largest group of volunteers.
W5YI exam search – Another VEC that operates in the area (Mostly Northern CT/ Eastern MA)
