ICC G18 Residential Electrician Exam Prep Course

The ICC Contractor/Trades examination program is an independent testing program designed to provide licensing agencies with information regarding qualified contractors and trades professionals. Participating in the Code Council examination program does not guarantee that a licensing agency will award you a license. However, the Code Council examination program serves as an independent appraisal of your competency in the construction field. Your test results may be used by licensing agencies to satisfy the requirements for testing. Upon successful completion of the examination, contact the jurisdiction for any other requirements in order to become licensed.

If you plan to perform residential electrical work such as the installation, repair, alteration, or addition to any electrical wires, fixtures, appliances, apparatus, raceways, conduit, or any part thereof in any state, city, or county where the ICC exams are accepted you may need to pass the G18 exam. Contact your local city or county to find out if this exam is required for the type of work you intend to perform.

"I Recommend Using The Services Of Contractor Training Center If You Are Serious About Passing The Exam. "

They don't waste your time with fluff. They arm you with all the right tools and give you special insights that you just won't get anywhere else. I would definitely choose them again if I have any future test requirements.
