VE Session today

The ETS of NJ VE Session was a success !

I was a bit disappointed that only six of nine candidates showed up,  but a bit more on that later.  The good thing was that all six candidates left with some success. 

We had two candidates acquire their Technician class licenses, two candidates upgraded to General, and two upgraded to Amateur Extra.

It's a good feeling when you can congratulate a candidate on a job well done. 

Regarding the three candidates that did not show.  Two were supposed to have attended last month's session but bailed. The third was new.  I emailed the two from last month, to confirm their attendance this mouth,  but never got an answer from either. The third contacted me just the other day to inquire if there was enough space for him to fit in and I replied in the affirmative, so I was surprised he didn't show.

So to all you folks out there scheduling to take an exam ..... if you can't make it,  let your liason know! Stuff happens and there's no shame in having to cancel,  but let the VE Team know.  We could have started earlier, but we were waiting for some word from the remaining three. As a result, we got out later than we otherwise would have. 

Enough of that - we'll just end on the general good feeling and bask in the success.
