New Exam Provider
The State Electrical Board has approved a switch in exam providers from ICC to PSI.
Beginning October 1st, 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.
During this transition we want applicants to understand that if they have already scheduled their exam through ICC, that we will honor that result for the 90 days you have with your approval. Starting October 1st, if you have been approved through ICC but have not yet scheduled your exam, please let us know by emailing Allyson.Crawford-Thi@nebraska.gov and we can help you get set up with approval through PSI instead.
