Candidates who pass either a written or telegraphy test are issued an examination credit document called a Certificate of Successful Completion of Examination (CSCE). (See Part 97.509(f) This gives the bearer credit for passing one or more examination elements and confers examination
credit for a period of 365 days from the date of issue. If applicable, it will also show the license class to which the bearer has upgraded and has been given temporary operating privileges until the actual license arrives..
|IMPORTANT: The three VEs who certify the 605 MUST be the same ones to sign the CSCE. No original copy of this form should be sent to W5YI-VEC; it is given to the applicant. This document must be
marked in such a way as to prevent any amendment once it has been issued. Carefully safeguard all blank copies of these certificates so that they can not be used improperly. All VE signatures and VE serial numbers must be legible.
Applicants should show the original CSCE to examiners at a subsequent exam session but only give copies of it to them, not the original. A copy of the CSCE must be attached to the NCVEC Form 605 when upgrading if code or written credit from a previous session is claimed. VEs of all VECs are required to accept the examination credit certificates of all other authorized VECs.
