Commercial Element 7

This self-study program is based on the June 10, 2013 FCC Element 7 question pool.

Commercial Element 7 is a requirement to obtain the GMDSS Radio Operator’s License. The FCC does not administer commercial operator license examinations. To obtain a new or upgraded FCC commercial operator license, you must pass an examination administered by a Commercial Operator License Examination Manager (COLEM). 

To pass Element 7,  you must correctly answer at least 75 questions on the 100-question exam.  The exam is made up of questions drawn from a  pool of 600 questions. Do not attempt to memorize the questions and answers as they appear in the FCC Element 7 question pool.  The questions and answer choices on the exam may be shuffled.

ELEMENT 7 EXAM STRUCTURE

The element 7 exam question pool is divided into 10 sections (A-J).  Sections are further divided into topics (1-100) with 6 questions associated with each topic for a total of 600 questions.  The element 7 license exam is comprised of one question randomly drawn from each topic for a total of 100 questions.  Table 1 shows the structure of the element 7 exam question pool.
