A note to be made: You will be taking a federal exam. As such, the FCC requires to know who you are. Since you are not licensed yet, they will require your Social Security Number or SSN. There are people who are sensitive about handing that number out, and we understand. There are two choices. You can either give us your SSN at the test time (the club does not keep this paperwork, it goes to the FCC), or you can obtain your Federal Registration Number (FRN) before the test, by going to https://apps.fcc.gov/coresWeb/regEntityType.doIf you do desire to get your FRN ahead of time, please enter it below, and/or make sure you take it with you to the class. The FCC FRN process is simple, and rather fast.
