All Commercial General and Mechanical Contractors are required to pass Business Management & Law exam in addition to any technical examinations required for the specific license category or subcategory.
NOTICE: The bulletin calls out an NEC version with "SC modifications" that can be found on the NFPA web site. This is false. NFPA does not provide localized versions of the code.
If you want to see the exact code modifications to the NEC (only effects two sections: 90 & 210), you'll have to start on this web page: South Carolina Building Codes Council and work your way up from the 2005 version which is where they started. Where it says "Continued", go to the previous version to find the change.
QUESTION: “What is the difference between the National Electrical Code (NEC) and the NEC Handbook?”. The Handbook has the same content as the NEC with additional drawings and explainations inserted.
The Handbook was designed for engineers and inspectors. The typical exam candidate should not use it as a prefered reference unless they are using it for inspection jobs in their day-to-day work.
Sample questions are based on the PSI publication titled “29 CFR PART 1926 Selections, as of June 2013” (highlighted in green above).
This file contains approx. 800 sample questions.
REMINDER: PSI uses this book for many exams they offer. Not all sections of this code will apply to your exam.
We also include a table showing the relationship between our questions and OSHA code sections. Corrections to the original PSI publication are noted.
