Many people fear taking tests, so we have created some great study tips and test-taking tips

We do have live classes for Florida State Exams, and we create customized home-study programs for all other local and state exams. Our methods work, and we have an unbelievably high passing rate! Here are all the ways that home-study programs can help you gain the skills you need to pass your exam the first time:

  1. You are able to study at your own pace and work the program around your work and home responsibilities.
  2. You can focus your attention on your weakest areas instead of having to review areas as a class when you already know the material.
  3. You can receive instruction from America's top Electrical Educator - Mike Holt - since 1974 he has been helping electricians just like you all across the U.S. pass their exams.
  4. If you get stuck on a concept, you can review sections - in a live class setting you have to move on to the next concept.
  5. After you pass the exam and open your business, you can use the books and DVDs for future in-house training. These are just some of the many reasons that our programs have been so successful in helping electricians pass their exams.
  6. When you are ready to pass your exam, call us at 888.632.2633 and ask for one of our Product Specialists, or email Info@MikeHolt.com
