Note to exam candidates about NEC versions

The sample questions we will provide for the NEC will be from the 2011 version since the latest exam bulletin published on 9/1/2014 states that PSI is using the 2011 to source questions. PSI is offering the 2014 version for sale but has not given a changeover date for new exams based on the 2014 version. If you find any info that conflicts with the bulletin, please notify us by using the contact link above.
