Mooresville – Electrical Exam Preparation/Detailed NEC Workshop (05/23/23-05/24/23)

From: $650.00

Description

Cost starts at: $650

Tuesday & Wednesday, May 23rd & 24th, 2023 – 8am to 6pm both days

(Please Arrive by 7:45 am. Lunch is ‘on your own’ from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm.)

Our Electrical Exam Preparation Workshop is known throughout the state of North Carolina as being the most effective way to pass the NC Electrical Exam.

The idea is for you to absorb as much information as you can from our study material on your own. You will study for about 4 to 6 weeks, 1 to 2 hours a day, and use the workshop as a way to fill in the gaps. You will be receiving an Instructional Manual which is accompanied by an online library of videos featuring your instructor, Victor Ring, and our late founder, Jeff Rodriquez. These videos are your opportunity to learn from Victor and Jeff in a private setting at your own pace. If you really get stuck during your studies, reach out for more guidance via phone or email. Use your time with Victor at the workshop to ask your follow up questions, learn test taking tips, and practice common “struggle areas” as a group before sitting for your exam with PSI.

This class focuses primarily on the 2020 NEC® but is appropriate for any NEC based-state exam.

NEC Code Book(s) is not included, but though our Reference Material Bookstore we have a link over to the NFPA Site.
