Journeyman & Master Electrical License and Exam

Arkansas classifies Electricians as either Journeyman or Master. Whereas the Journeyman is a more limited license, the Master Electrical license is unlimited and allows for contracting with the general public. We have built this page to outline the requirements for both licenses. All of our training is offered in an online self-paced format. Our exam prep is designed to help you pass your test 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 Arkansas Electrical License.
