Commercial Electrical Contractor Licensing & Exam Prep

Arizona Electrical Contractor Licenses are split into Residential, Commercial, and Dual certifications. The state previously required applicants to pass a Statutes and Rules exam, and that has been replaced by the AZ Statutes and Rules Training Course and Exam (SRE) provided by the Registrar of Contractors. All of our training is offered in an online self-paced format. Our exam prep is designed to help you pass your tests the first time, and is backed with our no pass, no pay policy. All of our courses are available from almost any device, any time. We hope that you will make RocketCert your home to help you obtain your Arizona Electrical Contractor License.
