Electrician Examination Questions Update to 2017 Codes Set for July 1, 2018 The department and our examination contractor, PSI have set a goal of having all electrician examination questions updated to the 2017 National Electrical Code® (NEC®), Washington Administrative Code (WAC), and Revised Code of Washington (RCW) by July 1, 2018. After that date, all exams will be based on the 2017 codes even if a person must retake an exam that was previously failed using the 2014 version. Typically, exam questions do not change significantly with adoption of new versions of the code. All examinations are open-book and exam candidates are allowed to take any original copyrighted material into the exam with them. Copies are not allowed except copies of RCW 19.28 or WAC 296-46B may be used. For more information about the exams, you can refer to WAC 296-46B-960 or visit the Electrical Exam Information page of our website.
