QUESTION: Who is required to have a California certified electrician license.?
ANSWER: Any electrician working for a C10 Electrical contractor who uses the tools and makes a connection of 100 volt-amps or higher must be certified.

QUESTION: I am a C-10 Contractor, do I have to be certified?
ANSWER: No, and Yes.
No, you do not need to be certified if you are a sole owner and hold the C10 license under your name, and you are performing the work directly under that license.
Yes, you must be certified if you work for another C-10 contractor and are working and paid as an employee.
For example, if you are paid to your social security number vs. being paid to your contractor’s license number, you must also be certified.

QUESTION: Why should someone study this course if the certification exam is an open-book test?
ANSWER: The electrical certification test is a very challenging exam and usually requires a month or more of preparation to pass. Every contractor we have interviewed, holding both a C-10 license and the Electrical Certification card, said passing their C10 Contractors exam was easy compared to passing their California Electrical Certification exam.
The 2014 NEC is a large and complex publication containing over 1000 pages of code. It is challenging to locate each correct article and answer in the time allowed during the exam without thorough preparation.
Our course is designed to familiarize you with the 2014 NEC. You will know precisely how to find the correct answers in the code.
We prepare you to successfully pass your exam by providing extensive knowledge of the structure of the code and by thoroughly covering each subject appearing on your CA Electrical Certification Exam.
