Overview & Benefits

Kansas Standard Residential Electrician (ICC KGX) Exam Prep Services & Materials

We offer everything you need to prepare for the Kansas Standard Residential Electrician Exam, also referred to as the ICC KGX Exam:

In Kansas, contractors are not licensed at the state level, but rather at the municipal level. To obtain a license in your jurisdiction, you may need to take and pass a licensing exam as well as complete other requirements before submitting an application for licensure.

Some cities and counties within Kansas offer license reciprocity or have agreements honoring other counties' licenses, but every jurisdiction is different. If you need help sorting out what to do in your city/county, a licensing specialist can help you sort out the process on a Contractor Licensing Start-Up Consultation.
