Commercial Element 7R

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

Commercial Element 7R is a requirement to obtain the restricted Global Maritime Distress Safety System (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 7R,  you must correctly answer at least 38 questions on the 50-question exam.  The exam is made up of questions drawn from a  pool of 300 questions. Do NOT attempt to memorize the questions and answers as they appear in the FCC Element 7R question pool.  The questions and answer choices on the exam may be shuffled.

Element 7R Exam Structure

The element 7R question pool is divided into 7 sections (A-G).  Sections are subdivided into topics  with 6 questions associated with each topic.   There are 300 questions in the element 7R question pool.  The element 7R license exam is comprised of one question randomly drawn from each topic for a total of 50 questions.  Table 1 shows the structure of the element 7R question pool.
