Answer: No. In the year you are qualified you do not need to do any further VSC.

See AUXMAN, page 8-13. It states:

B.8.a.(1) Maintaining Certification To remain certified, RBS VEs must perform at least five VSCs (passing or failing) and/or Auxiliary surface facility inspections each year following initial qualification, including the year in which qualified.

However, there is a correction for this regulation. From the same page in AUXMAN: Comment [CG-BSX-1:140]: To remain certified, RBS VEs must perform at least five VSCs (passing or failing) and/or Auxiliary surface facility inspections each year following initial qualification.
