IEC of Utah offers help to apprentices working for contractor members. Candidates preparing to take their Utah Journeyman License tests may choose to participate in the test prep options listed below:
- Group Study Sessions- Group study sessions are held once each month. The purpose of these sessions is to give individualized help with study plans, and to answer specific questions. This session is NOT a prepared presentation, but instead is an opportunity to get in-person feedback on questions that come up after taking the test or that arise from other test preparation activities. The cost for a study session is $40
- Code Practice- The Code Practice class has two elements: First, a prepared class on code topics to study. We will review the code book and the Candidate Information Bulletin. We will discuss marking strategies and highlight code sections on which to focus study. We will give information on the structure of the Code, and the calculations and processes when sizing conductors, raceways, overcurrent protection, enclosures, and determining clearances. Second, participants will be given a serial key to an online resource with test practice questions. These two elements can be purchased separately. The cost for the 4-hour class is $100 and the cost for the serial key to access practice questions is $80. Call for Non-member pricing.
