Self-Paced General/Residential Exam Preparation (24 hour course)

This self-paced online course is for students who want to study for the California General or Residential Electrician certification exam at their own pace.

Much of the class is dedicated to sample testing similar to state exams. It focuses on practical research by the students to find the answers to code questions rather than instruction by lecture.
