For those that hold Merchant Mariners licenses you are required to take a MROP (Marine Radio Operators Permit) certification class. When I took mine many eons ago you had to go the Federal Building in PDX to take the test.
Now there are online courses and exams. Pretty spendy for Coots budgets, but there may be a way to get a group course or find an instructor willing to do a group class. Not sure if or who handles this anymore in Oregon.
