When you schedule your exam, you can print off PSI's Candidate Bulletin which lists what materials you can bring for your exam as well as the content breakdown for each exam.

New Exam Provider 10-1-23
The State Electrical Board has approved a switch in exam providers from ICC to PSI.
Beginning October 1st, 2023, testing for Electrical Contractor, Journeyman, and Residential Wireman exams will be moving from ICC to PSI. With this transition comes several changes. I have listed some of the most important changes to note below.
- In the past, the Nebraska State Electrical Division has been the one to issue approval notices. This will no longer be the case. If you apply and are approved to take an exam, we will reach out to PSI with your eligibility, and they will notify you of this approval via email.
- There will be no option for at home testing. If you are approved to test through PSI, you will be taking your exam at one of their testing site locations. In Nebraska they have sites in Grand Island, Lincoln, Norfolk, North Platte, Omaha, Scottsbluff, and Sidney. PSI has alternate locations outside of Nebraska. If there is a demand for additional site locations, please let us know your recommendations and we will work with PSI to set those up if need be.
- The time allowed per each exam, and number of questions have changed also. For Electrical Contractors and Residential Wireman, you will be allowed 270 minutes for your exam. For Journeyman, you will be allowed 300 minutes for your exam. Each exam will be 100 questions.
