NASCLA Accredited Exam for Residential Electrical Contractors Exam Prep Course

The NASCLA Accredited Examination Program was designed to assist contractors who need to be licensed in multiple jurisdictions. Contractors who take the accredited examination can access NASCLA’s Examination Database (NED) and request that their results be sent to other jurisdictions that accept the examination, thereby reducing redundant licensing requirements. 

The National NASCLA Accredited Exam for Residential Electrical Contractors license is accepted for licensing in Florida and Utah.

Arizona and South Carolina currently administer the National NASCLA Accredited Exam for Residential Electrical Contractors.
