Electrician Candidate Information Bulletin

Good Morning,

Today we received a call from someone asking us the phone number to the PSI so they can change their appointment. ¬†While we don't do the actual exams here, we are more than happy to help ūüôā ¬†We put together a cheat blog with the link to the ECIB, Table of Contents, FAQ's, and some shameless marketing for our seminars and books. ¬†(I'd be a terrible business person if I didn't add a couple of sales links ūüėČ

Feel free to share this page with any Texas electrician preparing for their exam. This will come in handy.

The Electrical Candidate Information Bulletin can be found here.  You may download and save it, print it or just read it online. Make sure to bookmark this link so you can refer to it during your studies.
