Please be advised that while we expect to run this course on the 2020 NEC, you will be notified if California is not yet serving the 2020 NEC version of the State Exam by the time class starts, in which case the class will instead be taught on the 2017 NEC. Our aim is to best prepare you for the exam version the State is serving at the time of your class.
Live Online Two Day Exam Preparation is an online, instructor-led, fast-paced code study course focused on using the Code book in preparation for the State Certification exam. It is meant to be a refresher course for individuals otherwise ready to take the General or Residential Certification Exam. 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. If you are looking for a more extensive exam preparation course, consider Get Wired 404, consisting of 42 instructor-led hours, all online.
