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).
