Radio Communications Examinations
On 16 January 2007 an agreement was signed between Ofcom and the Radio Communications Foundation (RCF), setting out “the terms under which the Radio Communications Foundation (RCF) agrees to conduct amateur radio examinations and under which Ofcom agrees to recognise a candidate’s result in those examinations for the purpose of granting an amateur radio licence”.
This agreement is available for inspection on this website, along with other material relating to the Radio Communications Examinations (RCE).
In order to ensure the probity and quality of the examinations being managed by the RCF, the agreement with Ofcom stipulates an overall administrative structure. Under this structure the RCF has appointed a RCE Standards Committee responsible for oversight of the management structure and policies of the examinations.
An RCE (Examination) Committee, reporting to the Standards Committee, is responsible for the academic standards and examination performance.
The RCF has also appointed a Quality Manager to audit the examination process. He/she will report directly to the Chairman of the RCE Standards Committee.
This website will contain all of the documentation relating to the Radio Communication Examination.
