Below is a small sample of our exam prep questions:
- What would be the calculated minimum size feeder circuit conductors for Multiple Motors on the same feeder given the following conditions? 208 volts three-phase induction-type squirrel cage motors, Motor_1 is 25 HP, Motor_2 is 20 HP, using Type THW copper wire.
- Step_1: Table 430.250 lists the FLC at 74.8 amperes, and 59.4 amperes respectively.
- Step_2: Per 430.24, multiple motors are calculated at 125% of the largest motor, in addition to the remaining motors FLC ratings. So calculate; 74.8 amperes x 1.25 = 93.5 A + 59.4 A = 152.9 amperes total load on the feeder.
- Step_3: Table 310.16 slide down the THW (75 deg C) column to size up to 175 A, then slide to the left to size the 2/0 AWG feeder circuit conductors.
- How many 20A lighting circuits are required for the following dwelling?
- Square Footage: 2,800 sq-ft (Outside Dimensions: 40 ft x 70 ft)
- Operating Voltage: 120/240 V single-phase
- Air Conditioning: 5,000 VA
- Electric Heating: 10,000 VA
- Other Appliances: 15,000 VA
- Step_1: Calculate the maximum load on 20A circuit. P = I x E = 20 amperes x 120 volts = 2,400 VA.
- Step_2: Understand that each 20A lighting circuit can only be loaded to 80% of capacity. Therefore, 2,400 VA x 0.8 = 1,920 VA maximum per circuit.
- Step_3: Per NEC Article 220.12 (J) calculate the total lighting load; 3 VA/sq-ft x (40 ft x 70 ft) = 8,400 VA
- Step_4: Calculate the number of 20A circuits required; 8,400 VA total / 1,920 VA max per circuit = 4.375 circuits.
- Step_5: Five (5) circuits are required.
- According to the NFPA 72, in high air movement areas, the smoke detector spacing shall be reduced. This location and spacing guidance is intended for early warning of fire. Therefore, what would be the required spacing per detector if the air changes per hour were designed at 15?
- NFPA 72 – Table 220.127.116.11.3.2, Figure 18.104.22.168.3.2. 500 sq-ft.

Reference Materials to bring to testing center:
1. The National Electrical Code, 2020 edition
2. National Fire Alarm Code, 2013 edition
Calculators, scratch paper and pencils will be provided at the test center. Only the references listed above will be allowed in the testing center; no other books or reference materials are permitted.
Personal notes (formulas/calculations) in pen are allowed!
In addition to the 2020 NEC and 2013 NFPA (if applicable), the examination will consist of questions concerning the following references:
1. Electrical Contractors Licensing Law (General Statutes Chapter 87, Article 4)
2. The Board’s Rules for the Implementation of the Electrical Contractors Licensing Law (Title 21, North Carolina Administrative Code, Chapter 18B)
3. NASCLA Contractors’ Guide to Business, Law and Project Management: North Carolina Electrical Edition.
These references are designed as “CLOSED BOOK” questions. That is, no candidate will be allowed to refer to any part of these documents during the examination.

Schedule for your examination
Complete the registration form on line at www.psiexams.com, or call (855) 746-8173.
Take your examination
▪ You must bring two forms of valid (non-expired) identification, which bear your signature. One of these must have your photograph.
▪ Your name as shown on the state approved roster must exactly match the name on the photo I.D. used when checking in at PSI.
▪ Arrive 30 minutes prior to exam appointment.
After your examination:
▪ You will receive your results upon exam completion.
▪ Upon passing the examination, your results will automatically be made available to the Board for licensure.
▪ For licensing status information, go to www.ncbeec.org or call the Board at (919) 733-9042.
▪ A person who fails a qualifying examination shall not be eligible to take another examination in the same classification until three months after the date of the failed examination. However, a person can re-apply for a different license classification, and test for the different license (i.e. if you failed for Unlimited, you can resubmit a new application for the Intermediate license).
▪ A person who fails an examination in the same classification three times must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 16 hours of classroom education on the electrical code provided by a board-approved continuing education sponsor before retaking the examination.
