I say all that to say this: I would not have been able to pass the EE98 and EE98J exams without the help of Bob at Construction Seminars. This course is a must!

The National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies (NASCLA) has partnered with several industry stakeholders to create one nationally recognized accredited trade examination for electricians. NASCLA offers three (3) different open book electrical trade examinations through the NASCLA Accredited Electrical Examination Program:
Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from around the country came together to work with NASCLA in developing the job analyses for each examination to represent the work performed in jurisdictions throughout the United States. NASCLA conducted national surveys of electricians in each category to aid the SMEs in the creation of each job analysis. The SMEs developed items based on the job analysis and vetted those questions during follow-up meetings. These job analyses, questions, and examinations were developed under the highest national psychometric and electrical standards. The NASCLA Accredited Electrical Examination Program has been developed to: improve the overall quality and validity of trade licensing examinations in general for electricians; participating states will provide contractor mobility by allowing electricians the opportunity to cross state borders without having to take multiple electrical examinations.
All practical experience must be documented on the Affidavit of Experience form provided by the Board and completed by the electrical contractor supervising the work that was performed. Journeyman electricians cannot be a signatory authority for a company.
We offer exam-taking tips and tricks, an overview of important topics to know within the references for the exam, practice test questions and answers, and a real-life simulation practice test that matches the exam content areas and time limit.
