Commercial Radio Operator License Program

 

Commercial Radio Operator License Program


FCC rules require that licensees of ship, aircraft, and international fixed public radiocommunication stations permit only persons holding the appropriate FCC-issued commercial operator license to perform specified transmitter operation, maintenance and repair duties. To obtain a new or upgraded FCC commercial operator license, you must pass an examination administered by one of the Commercial Operator License Examination Managers (COLEMs).
