Dated: September 1st, 2021

August brought many positive improvements and changes to our VE program  Before going any further, here are some numbers as of 11:59pm Alaska Time on Tuesday, August 31st, 2021:

Number of examinees tested as of August 31st, 2021:    847
Number of exam sessions in August 2021:    11
Total number of examinations administered since December 2020:    981

We released some additional improvements to our exam platform, called HamExamGen.  We released version 2.1 in August which carried numerous enhancements and added features.  Many of the changes were critical bug fixes and setting up the platform to export session documentation in one PDF file.

As we look ahead to September, we are pleased to have released a new version of our VE Handbook.  Still looking to the rest of this year, we will always remain willing to look at innovative ways to keep our service unique.  For those who still remain faithful in their service to our VE program, your efforts are never forgotten.  A very sincere thank you to all in our VE Program!
