Orlando, FL (January 2, 2001) -- W4VEC, a leading Volunteer Examiner Coordinator and member of the National Volunteer Examiners Coordinators Program of the Federal Communications Commission, has received accreditation from CRELC to offer and issue NTSC certifications and NTCE degree/certification

W4VEC is offering on a limited and trial basis testing for the Networking & Telecommunications Systems Certificate Levels I through III, (NTSC) and The Networking and Telecommunications Certified Engineer Degree Program, administered by The Central Registry of Education, Licensing, and Certifications and Hosted by the NIII (National Information Services and Information Technology Institute).

" W4VEC is well suited and shares common goals with CRELC, NTCE, and NIII. Their service to the community, the not for profit goals of W4VEC, and their honorable service record made them a prime candidate for Instruction and Test Center development. ", said Mr. John Robb from CRELC.

Mr. Mark Hall added: " We feel very confident on our ability to work with the administrative and technical W4VEC staff to bring these and other technical coursework, certifications, and educational programs nationwide, at a significantly reduced cost." 

" We feel very optimistic on current and future associations we may develop with CRELC, NTCE, and NIII. W4VEC's management structure allows for rapid implementation - administratively and technically. ", said Chris O'lmeda, VEC Officer. " The NTCE program is a perfect compliment to the FCC-AR program currently offered by W4VEC. We [W4VEC] will enable low cost, nationwide testing and training opportunities for all those interested in developing professional skills acquired in the FCC-AR program through our nationwide test centers. In some cases test fees have dropped 50% when compared to private test center offerings, making W4VEC the natural choice in testing alternatives for students, professionals, and HAMS. ", further explained Mr. O'lmeda.
