I am getting ready to take my General exam and have been searching for my original Code CSCE. Is there some method to request a duplicate? Or do I need to take the exam again. Thanks, Al KD7PML

The club that administered your test may have a copyofyour CSCE in their records of your code test. And, without looking it up, I think it has to be within 1 year of the test to be used.

Good Luck, Ken

The VE team that administered the test should have complete records on the session and be able to issue a replacement.


If it's feasable, I would try to take my written with the same VE team that gave you your Element 1 - since it may make life simpler for both you and the VE team.

And yes, a CSCE is only good for 12 months for upgrade credit.

I am going through the exact same thing.  If the ARRL adminstered the exam, you can e-mail them (vec@arrl.org).  Tell them when/where you passed the code test.  They can send you a certified document showing where you passed Element 1.  Hope this helps!

I see that you are a tech with code.
Please don't listen to the people that are telling
you that your code CSCE is only good for a year.
If you are a tech with code than you only need the
CSCE as proof of your code test.

This is a confusing issue. Here's what I found out.

1. A CSCE with proof of Part 1 5wpm code is good indefinitely to substantiate HF operating privileges in the Novice/TechPlus bands.

2. It's good only for 12 months for use in upgrading when taking parts 3 or 3 & 4. If the holder has a Tech license issued since restructuring.

3. An issued Tech Plus license document from the FCC, on the other hand, issued before the last restructuring, is, since it is not a CSCE, but rather a license, good indefinitely (if not expired) as proof of Part 1 and Part 2 credit for upgrading to General / Extra

I had to research this when I upgraded in January. My Tech Plus license was from 1999. And the CSCE was worthless as it was too old. The license document, on the other had, was all I needed.

One correction , it is not good for a year, it is good for 365 days, that means if you passed on 11 mar 01, it would have expired on 10 mar 02,  and lets not think about a leap year.. but it does state 365 days...
