PLT Examination Preparation Class Schedule
This class introduces qualified individuals to the knowledge that is required to pass Minnesota's Power Limited Technician license examination. The class (three and one half days) focuses on elements specifically associated with the PLT license examination and the PLT license. It covers the applicable portions of the National Electrical Code, the Minnesota Laws and Rules related to electrical licensing and inspection, and relevant mathematics and technology. This training is applicable to ALL professions and trades where the Power Limited Technician license is applicable.
The class is specifically designed to prepare unlicensed individuals to take the Power Limited Technician license examination. While an electrical- or electronics-based background can be helpful, it is not essential to completing this course or passing the exam. Familiarity with the NEC is even more helpful, but again is not essential to success.
Demand for this class is remains high and seating is limited. Please note that this class is NOT a continuing education class. It does not provide continuing education credits for attendance.
The Low Voltage Guy has now completed 126 PLT exam prep classes, preparing more than 2,500 individuals for the PLT license exam.
The success rate for individuals taking the Power Limited Technician examination after completing this course is high ... estimated to be about 65 to 70 percent. This number is based on the number of individuals actually receiving licenses, and also on scores reported by students. Many of these individuals passed the examination on their first attempt. Supporting data is available upon request.
Electrical exams are administered on most Wednesdays at the Department of Labor and Industry, located at 443 Lafayette Road in St. Paul, Minnesota. Exams are also administered at various locations around the state. Call 651-284-5031 for additional information. Exam scheduling information available at http://www.dli.mn.gov/CCLD/Exam.asp.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION -- PLEASE READ! It is expected that the State of Minnesota will adopt the 2017 National Electrical Code to become effective on July 1, 2017. The January and April PLT exam prep classes will be based on the current 2014 Code and it is expected that the individuals taking either of these two classes will take the exam prior to July 1, 2017. Beginning with the July class, the focus will be on the 2017 Code as the PLT exam will then be based on the 2017 Code.

It is both possible and regrettable that, under the rarest of circumstances, a class must be cancelled due to low enrollment.
