Certified Professional Electrician Exam Overview

The IEC National Certified Professional Electrician Exam covers the key concepts and practical skills across the four-year IEC Electrical Apprenticeship Program. Competencies on these exams come from the Core Concepts, which appear at the end of each year. These two exams occur over a two (2) day period.

The written exam is a compilation of questions from IEC four-year apprentice training tests and reflects the current National Electrical Code (NEC). The exam will range from 80-100 questions, with a four (4) hour time limit. In order to pass, a candidate must achieve a minimum of 75%.

The practical exam is a hands-on exam, which consists of nine total activities and will be graded using a pass/fail system. In order to successfully pass this portion of the exam, the candidate must pass all components. Should a person fail one of these portions, they will be given the option to continue testing or they are entitled to leave. On a retest, the candidate must pass all components.

If an individual fails the exam they must still pay the Practical Exam fee.
