Overview & Benefits
NASCLA Nationally Accredited Electrical Examination Program
The National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies (NASCLA) created a standardized accredited examination to take place of individual state licensing exams for Electricians. Electrical Exam Candidates applying to any accepting state agency can opt to take the NASCLA Electrical Exam in lieu of their state's specific licensing exam.
Once a candidate passes the NASCLA Electrical Exam through an administering state agency, they will not need to take another licensing exam if they are applying for licensure with any of the other participating state agencies.
A Journeyman Electrician is an individual who has demonstrated capacity in the knowledge and skills needed to properly perform the installation, maintenance and repair of electrical work conforming to applicable standards and codes.
