Below is a small sample of our exam prep questions:

  1. A swimming pool branch circuit when properly derated with THWN copper conductors would be a minimum size of what, given a load of; 208 V, 3 HP, single-phase, continuous duty operation motor?
    • Correct Answer: NEC – Table 430.248, 430.22(A), 18.7 amperes * 125% = 23.4 amps, then size using Table 310.15(B)(16) = 12 AWG copper.
  2. Use Ohm’s Law and the NEC to calculate the what the maximum distance would be between the source voltage and a motor load given the following conditions; 120 VAC, 1 HP pump motor, 13.8 amps FLA, 12 AWG copper, and Maximum voltage drop of 3%.
    • Correct Answer: NEC – Table 8, Chapter 9 for circular mil conversion and “k” calculations L = Vd x CM/(2 x I x K) = 120V x 3% x 6530CM/(2 x 13.8A x 12.9) = 66 feet.
  3. Use Ohm’s Law to calculate what the load current would be, given that a 11,000 watt electrical hot tub (spa heater) is connected to a 240-volt residential service?
    • Correct Answer: Ohms Law: I = P/E. 11000 watts / 240 volts = 45.8 amperes, so 46 amperes.


Since the PSI state test is composed from several code and text books revisions, our exam prep program simulates this testing experience. Question and code references from the current and older code books and calculations are included with this module. This gives our customers the very best chance to study and prepare with the variety of questions that can be asked during their examination.
