Certification by two of the most recognized international organizations in the electrical inspector industry.

Examination content is job related, and is provided by practicing electrical inspectors.

Computer-based examinations are available five days per week at over 120 sites geographically distributed across the United States.

Re-certification ensures that you maintain your currency and relevancy in the profession.

Hello Joe,
Is this the same as the IAEI electrical inspectors exam? I had passed all 3 of those, but I'm interested in any other exams that are out there. Thats good, it keeps the head in the books.
