Electrical Examinations

State electrical certification examinations administered on behalf of the Electrical Contractors’ Licensing Board are given in two parts: technical/safety and business.

DBPR offers electrical examinations in a computer-based testing (CBT) format. Candidates who have been approved to sit for one of the following examinations may do so by contacting the department’s examination vendor, Pearson VUE. Examinations are available on a daily basis at testing sites throughout the world.

Candidates taking a computer-based examination through Pearson VUE will be required to submit a valid email address, telephone number, and payment at the time the examination is scheduled. Candidates will be eligible to schedule an examination within 72 hours after the candidate’s examination application has been approved by the department.
