FAQ

What is the structure for the Oregon electrical exam?

There are three different types of electrical tests that are seen for Oregon electrical licensing.

  • The LEB, LRT, and LME license tests are 2 hours and contain 28 code look-up questions that come from the National Electrical Code, Oregon Electrical Specialty Code, Oregon Revised Statutes, and Oregon Administrative Rules. To get a passing score of 75% you need to get 21 correct questions.
  • The Journeyman test for LEA, J, PJ, and LR are all 3 hours and have 52 code look-up questions that come from the National Electrical Code, Oregon Electrical Specialty Code, Oregon Revised Statutes, and Oregon Administrative Rules. To get a passing score of 75% you need to get 39 correct questions.
  • The General Supervising and Limited Supervising license consist of two parts. The first part consists of 52 code look-u questions that come from the National Electrical Code, Oregon Electrical Specialty Code, Oregon Revised Statutes, and Oregon Administrative Rules. To get a passing score of 75% you need to get 39 correct questions. The second part of the exam is 12 questions that may be scenario-type or stand-alone-type calculation questions based on the National Electrical Code and the Oregon Electrical Specialty Code. This section also requires a 75% passing score or 9 correct answers. You must get a 75% passing score on both parts within the 4-hour time limit at the same sitting to get your license.

Do your classes teach to the two parts of the Supervisors test?

Yes, I have distinct sections that that cover both sections of the exam. I even break down each section further to better understand the components of the OAR’s and ORS, that are vital to the Supervising Electrician and the exam itself. I also describe my methodology to attack the exam to make it more comfortable to succeed during the stressful 4 hour test.

Do you have study materials?

Yes, I have a workbook that you receive when you sit for the class. This workbook has practice tests and assignments that we go through in class and you can work on at home between class dates. This workbook is full of calculations that I have produced and include the necessary skills that every Supervising Electrician needs to be successful at the test and on the job.

Can I talk to you after the class if I have questions?

Yes, the purchase of the Supervisors Test Prep Class buys you the access to my phone to answer questions that you may have. I also offer one on one tutoring, see question #1.

If I can’t leave work do you offer online classes?

Yes, I offer Supervisors Test Prep, Code Change, ORL, and Calculation Crash Course in 4 and 8 hour increments. I am always open to scheduling a in person class is a group can agree on a time and a location. I have relationships with many locations for class venues.

Do classes qualify for Continuing Education Credit?

See specific class registration for the number of hours of continuing education credited to your license.

Can you help me if I fail the test?

Yes, I offer one on one phone tutoring that is in blocks of 30 minutes each. That way you have my complete attention and can address each subject(s) that you want to focus on. I did this routinely when I worked at BCD, it can be of real help especially if you have an exam scheduled and want to review a method, to master it before the exam.

What other opportunities are offered after I pass the Supervisor exam?

I have a practice test for the EI or Electrical Inspector exam. This practice test is 100 code look up questions to be completed in 4 hours, just like the state exam. This will round out your certifications for Oregon. You can be at the top of the hill with the Supervisor License and A level Electrical Inspector certification. Check with BCD for the next OIC class to meet the requirements for the EI. After that I can help you command the authority of your chosen specialty in the electrical industry.

How long before I find out I have passed the test?

The BCD staff will turn around the grading of the exam usually in the same day they receive it. If you take the test on a Monday, the test is sent to BCD the next day and usually lands at BCD on Friday afternoon. Depending on the work load it can be graded and posted to the BCD website that day or on the following Monday in most cases. Remember it gets posted on the BCD website as soon as there is a passing score.

What is the pass/fail rate for the Supervisors exam?

The current pass rate is 58% for those that apply for and sit for the exam.

How often can I sit for the exam?

After receiving the authorization letter from BCD you can schedule an exam every 30 days.
