Many people have a fear of test-taking and we have some great study tips as well as test-taking tips

We create customized homestudy programs for all local and state exams, and our methods work. We have an unbelievably high passing rate! Here are all the ways that homestudy 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 guys just like you all around the country pass their exams.
  4. If you get stuck on a concept, you can rewind sections and review - 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. If this is something that you would like to pursue a little more, then give our office a call 888.632.2633 and ask for one of our Product Specialists.
